    Is your WiFi on your phone on?
    Have you tried rebooting your phone?

    I have the same issue with my LG. My Samsung device and LG tablet connect without any issue. my original pixel never connected either. I just assumed they didn't support Miracast

    I have the same problem. brand new pixel 2 XL and it does not discover any devices to cat to at all. bit of a deal breaker if you ask me. I know the phone is capable of connecting to the TV, like viewing photos and phone content by other methods, but mirroring he phone screen exactly as it is to the TV isn't possible.

    Hoping to find out if these are rare cases or if all pixel phones do this.

    I just assumed they didn't support Miracast
    Native Miracast support was dropped from Android with marshmallow - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracast#Android A quick Google search provided me this app that supposedly restores the functionality, though I have not tried it myself (see below) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rt.tv&hl=en_US

    but mirroring he phone screen exactly as it is to the TV isn't possible.
    Sure it is. I've done it with my Pixel 2 XL, I have a Chromecast plugged into my TV. Miracast support was dropped for Marshmallow in favor of the Chromecast protocol. For apps that are supported on the TV I'm watching (mainly YouTube and Netflix) I can choose to cast those without switching to the Chromecast.

    I assume you have Android P?

    I have a Chromecast device on each of my 3 TV's. One is a 55" LG OLED and two are smaller HD Samsungs. I can cast to any one of them at any time with my Pixel 2 XL. As stated by others, with Pixel devices only Chromecast is now supported for casting.

    IDK what the solution is but I'm happy to say I have no issues using my Pixel 2 running official pie to cast using Chromecast.

    I got it fixed somehow on my device (Pixel 2, but probably same issue) by resetting the Play-Services .
    Give it a try.

    How about step-by-step instructions on how you did this?

    what are you using to cast with? Chromecast or what? If using Chromecast how old is it? Have you updated it recently. If it's a older Chromecast maybe try a newer model.
    I had an older model that would crash all the on my Pioneer Kuro tv. I bought a new model today also crashed a lot, after updating it's firmware I haven't had any crashed since.
    BTW, I've had zero issues casting to my LG OLED TV
    Best of luck!
