It has been a while that Xiaomi Mi A1 was unveiled. It is cool with dual camera, and the shooting features are awesome, I really love it. With this new mobile, definitely I want to play games on it. But the screen of M1 A1 is just 5.5 inches not as big as its Mi Max 2 And due to its design of the speaker, when I play the game or watch shows on the mobiles, the sound played will be affected if I hold my phone in horizon. Thus, I started to search programs to enable me see phone screen on PC. Amazingly, I found a one which can do this and even allow me to use Xiaomi on the computer.


Here is the program, ApowerMirror, which can display Xiaomi Mi A1 screen to the computer, control the mobile with the mouse and keyboard, and even record the phone screen. Below is how to use it.

  • Download the desktop app from its website and the mobile app from Google Play.
  • Turn on USB debugging on the phone and also enable "USB debugging (Security settings)". Use USB cable to connect Mi A1 to the computer. If the mobile pops up a notification asking for allowing "USB debugging" while connection, allowing it.
  • When it all finishes, A1 will soon be casted to the computer. And after that, you can view phone screen on the computer. Also, you can click on the apps from the computer.

On the tool bar, click "Full screen" button, you can see the screen in a even larger size. You can also capture the screenshot from the computer, or record your gameplay.

Keyboard is used for typing messages and other texts.

All these awesome features make me feel like using a big A1 computer. And all the app data and history are just saved on my phone.

You can try this program and tell me how you like it!

Thanks for the tips! I used it, it is convenient and helpful. I don't use it for games though, it helps me cast my phone content to the computer and I can use for meetings.
