    A Feature that is backed in the OS since Android Ice Cream Sandwich?

    Why did Moto remove this?

    On my Turbo it is found here:

    Settings > Display > Cast Screen

    You sure you don't have it?

    I have it, but it's without function on the Moto Z Line, says Motorola Global.

    Only Google chromecast is working, but it's not the same as Miracast/ Wireless Display.

    Bummer, love being able to cast my screen to my TV's.

    Only reason i can think of by removing this standard android OS feature ( i know it is there since android Ice Cream Sandwich )

    They want you to buy their insta share Projector for 369€.

    Not Cool, Moto, Not Cool.

    Have to keep one of my old phones for screen sharing :/

    To add to the oddness, it's in the manual for the phone (at least for the Z/Z Force) as if it's there & supported, but it's not working. Not clear if it's disabled or broken, but it clearly doesn't work.

    that's really a bummer.
    Love to stream movies etc via Miracast. will keep my old LG Flex 2 for this.

    So the question remains: why did Moto remove it?

    as i understamd it , it's an android OS feature since ICS , it's backed into the OS.

    My suspicion is the same as why the projector mod doesn't work with the NFL app - licensing. Easier to make sure the device can't stream the screen than to make sure apps are set up properly to prevent streaming while the app is showing. Pretty lame, if true, since it kills a very useful feature.

    it's lame from Moto, indeed.

    we should reach out via social Networks, it is easy for Moto enable it via Update.

    it's almost the perfect phone, almost.
