Android mirroring is now available on Chromecast

by -

Chromecast users can now start ‘mirroring’ their Android devices over the WiFi. Google has pushed an update for Chromecast, which adds this new feature to the device. The feature was already there on Apple TV and the star Android developer Koushik Dutta (Koush) also offered mirroring for his ‘AllCast’ app.

So now you can ‘play’ Angry Bird (if you are still playing it) or any other game that deserves a big screen on your TV. I updated my Chromecast and enabled the ‘ScreenCast’ feature on my Nexus 5 (running Android L). I was able to stream everything on the phone onto my TV connected to Chromecast. I did notice some issues with audio streaming as I tried to play some music.

If you own a Chromecast, reboot it and check if you can mirror your Android screen.
