    No. this functionality is not supported. The HDMI port is unidirectional for video and audio. It only outputs those signals.

  • The MacBook Air does not support USB-C. Also, Apple devices' HDMI connections are only designed for output, not input. In order to use your MacBook Air as a monitor you would need some sort of tuner or capture card that connects via Thunderbolt/USB.

  • No, that will not work. No Mac laptop produced in at least the last 10 years can be used as a display for another device.

  • No. This has a USB-C connector on the male side of the adapter. The MBA 2015 does not have USB C.

  • Not a chance. There is no way to use the MacBook as a monitor for another device.
