Hey there!

 

I am not 100% understanding what you are asking, seems to be a typo here. Can you elaborate a little for me?

If you have a TV capable of wirelessly transmitting a casting signal from your phone to your TV that would work. Theoretically, wired connections won't work due to some limitations.

 

Most high end Android phones can use Google Cast to output the picture to the TV but it has to support Chromecast Mirroring or you need a HDMI device from Google to do so

 

Here is an example of one https://www.bestbuy.com/site/google-chromecast-streaming-media-player-charcoal/6288362.p?skuId=62883...

 

Again your phone has to support mirroring on order to do so.

I cast my android phone to my Google Chromcast on a TV and played Fruit Ninja.  After 5 to 10 minutes my phone started getting really hot so I  never did it again.

We do have various TVs that have Google Chrome Cast built in. We also sell, as you had mentioned, the Chrome Cast device separately. You would still need your phone to cast the games and such though.
