How to Share your Screen with BBQScreen - No Root


We here at +Android Coliseum love showing off apps to our followers and those who watch us live on our Live Hangouts, for that we use an app call BBQScreen.
BBQScreen was originally introduced to us be our newest writing member +Martin Guay, and we've been using it ever since. Best of all, a recent update now allows users to show their screens live Without Root Access and I'm going to show you how.


1: You'll have to buy the BBQScreen app which does cost a few dollars. You'll also need to download the desktop client for your computer at http://screen.bbqdroid.org/
Once you have installed these on your phone and computer, you're ready for the next step.

2: Turn on the BBQScreen Client for your computer, it should look like this:


If you're rooted, you can turn your app on and start sharing your screen by selecting your phone from top right box where it lists my Nexus 5. Once you've done that you're ready to go!

If you're not rooted: it's still fairly easy to setup, however it does require a few extra steps.
You'll install the same software and everything from step 1, however you'll be required to turn on USB debugging.


To find this you'll have to reveal the "Developer options" if you haven't already. If you haven't revealed this option you can go to "Settings > About phone > Tap "Build number" repeatedly until told "You're now a developer" Now you can find the "Developer options" and enable "USB debugging" 

Once you've enabled USB debugging, you can now connect your phone to your computer and click on the button on the bottom left corner that says, "tstrap non-root USB met" and your phone will appear on the top right box as seen in the example picture at the top. You may now click your phone in the top right box and click "Connect" - Because you're not rooted, your USB must remain plugged in to continue sharing your screen.


That's it! You're now sharing your screen for all to see whether you're rooted or not.
Review those apps on Google Hangouts for all to see!
