The feature has been given several names that includes Aetthercast, Display cast or Miracast. A similar technology called Ubuntu Convergence is also available but only supported by the BQ Aquaris Ubuntu Edition because it is the only device that has the right software and sport a video out.

The new OTA-11 update comes to answer the prayers of those using devices that do not feature a video out -like all supported Ubuntu phones — to be able to interact with their handset in a desktop setup needing only a wireless dongle, keyboard,display and mouse.
