    I've read that a recent update to Chromecast allows mirroring without a wifi connection. Can't figure out how to do it with my S6. I know there is guest mode but it still requires having wifi. I'm looking for a way to mirror to Chromecast without wifi, as in my motorhome.

    Or is it limited to only a few apps like Youtube?

    Welcome to Android Central!

    You should be able to open the Chromecast app on your phone and find the Chromecast. Then you should be able to connect to it and mirror your screen.

    If you only need to mirror your S6 to computer, then you may considering using this phone mirroring application. Since you have mentioned that you want to do screen mirroring without using Wifi, you can then use USB cable for connection instead. In this way, you can easily mirror and even control your S6 on pc.

    The Chromecast dongle has no way of knowing if you are connected to a hotspot or a router. The video is not fake...the only thing fake here is your obvious attempt to scam some poor soul.

    Don't listen to John Dowling. He either doesn't know what he is talking about or, worse, he wants to take you for a ride.
