Some Android phones have Micro HDMI or MHL ports, which people can use to connect their phones or tablets to televisions or monitors by using compatible cables. Apple sells adapters that convert the 30-pin port on iPhones and iPads to an HDMI port.
Another option is using a specialized device to stream the content over a network. Chromecast devices, for example, let users stream content with compatible smartphones, tablets or computers. Although Chromecast and similar devices can't stream content directly from a phone or tablet, they are viable options for users who just want to stream video to televisions or monitors.
