This could be posted in the Android or Mobile Handset forums, but the key issue is the Netflix app.

On my Samsung Galaxy S8+ the Netflix app can share the screen to a TV.

But on my Huawei P20 Pro, screen mirroring of the Netflix app just casts the sound...but no image.

Netflix apprently removed what they think of as an old protocol.

Annoying.

I use chromecast fine on my Huawei Mate 10 with Netflix but guess you dont have one? Would be a cheap solution. Not tried screen mirroring except for SkyGo which works fine.

+1 on using the Chromecast approach. I always found screen mirroring to be a bit "so so". Generally quite a bit of lag and lower refresh rates.

Not all screen mirroring implementations support HDCP which is needed for protected content to be shared.

I generally screen share when traveling. I used to use mobile data and a hotspot on one phone - then connect a second phone and the Chromecast to it. But Google decided to not allow that anymore, so screen mirroring was the way to go.

It worked fine on my SGS 8+, so I'm disappointed to find it doesn't work in my Huawei P20 Pro.

I guess I'll just have to carry two phones like I used to. I usually put a local SIM in the 2nd one anyway.

In this case, Telstra. I've been in OZ 4 days of every week for the past 3 months.

There is a Huawei compatible cable you can buy at Noel Leeming that works great for mirroring. Was $40. This is the same one I got but on TradeMe. Might work. I just use Chromecast way more now as this drained the battery something horrid (cant charge at the same time)

I do this all the time, albeit I use a router with a sim card in there (B618) and then connect the Chromecast and my phone to the SSID and then go into Netflix and cast to my Chromecast. I find it hard to believe that this suddenly stopped working.
