HP says that the second screen can be used to message friends, browse Spotify, watch Twitch and YouTube, etc. The device also comes with a screen mirroring feature that can cut and magnify parts of the main screen – including copying the map portion of a racing game – to the second screen, ensuring the vision is centered and head movement more vertical than horizontal.
