    From what I was reading online your phone has to support Miracast in order to do this and even Google has removed this from their phones. That is probably the reason it's not working. I can't say for certain though all I know is I tried and I cannot cast from my S8+, Pixel 2 XL, or a ZTE phone to my Windows computer. None of them see it after opening the Connect app on the computer.

    To use cast on Windows system, the wifi chip on the system needs to certified to support Miracast. Casting on Windows PC is a bit wonky and I tend to have better success if both devices are on the same wifi bands (ie both using 2.4ghz or both using 5ghz). I have yet casting to a windows devices but I have success casting from windows devices to another device (like roku).
