Why use Nokia Beamer

Nokia Beamer icon
Nokia Beamer is an app from Microsoft which allows users to mirror their screens on any display connected to the internet. It may be a tv(with internet), your friends smartphone or a PC. This application is exclusively for Nokia Lumia users.

How to use it

Using the Nokia Beamer app is extraordinarily simple. Follow these steps to find out how and you will know exactly what I mean.

Beaming to a TV

Open the Nokia Beamer app in your Lumia. Then open the url beam.nokia.com in your TV. A QR code will appear when the site is loaded. Place your phone so as to scan the QR code.

After a few minutes your TV and Lumia will be connected. After that happens every movement in your smartphone will be mirrored in your TV. Pictures, SMS, videos and even games. But there is a catch, your TV and phone must have sufficiently fast internet connection for Beaming to occur smoothly. Beaming to your PC is exactly the same. Isn't this simple?

Beaming to another Phone

Options for beaming to a remote device
There are 3 ways in which you can Beam to another phone. Please note that the other device need not be a Lumia. That's right, you can beam to any device with decent internet speed. Also all the three ways are similar. In case if SMS, you get a link as an SMS whereas in case if e-mail or social media you get it as a message or post respectively. Also you can add participants for remote beaming, that is you can beam to more than one device at a time.

Please do note that the data transfer speed is a contributing factor.

The Final Verdict

With Nokia Beamer you can also beam to multiple devices but they should be the same platform,TV or mobile, in other words, nearby or remote. The fact is that I really don't find any practical uses of this application other than showing off your phone or TV. If you have a fast data connection, then you will find this useful in showing your friends or family photos or videos which you have in your phone, so you can do so without the trouble of connecting the USB and everything that follows.
