How can I tell if my device supports Wi-Fi Miracast?

Most Android and Windows devices manufactured after 2012 support Wi-Fi Miracast.

Windows 8.1 Devices

The Add a wireless display option will be available in the Project menu if Miracast is enabled on the device.  Slide the Charms menu in from the right of the screen and select Devices, then Project. If the Add a wireless display option is not available, ensure the drivers for the Display and Wireless Network adapters on the device are up-to-date.  You can obtain the latest drivers from the device manufacturer. If the drivers are up-to-date and the Add a wireless display option is not available, your device does not support Miracast.

Android Devices

Miracast technology is built into Android operating system versions 4.2 and higher. Some Android 4.2 and 4.3 devices do not support Miracast.  If your Android device supports Miracast, the Screen Mirroring option will be available in the Settings app or in the pull-down/notification menu. Some Samsung devices running Android versions 4.x do not have this option and must use the AllShareCast app available on the Google Play Store.
