  • Google is preparing to offer the ability to mirror a screen on your Android or tablet to a TV using Chromecast. Users already rely on Chromecast to stream audio, video and other content from the web to the TV, while using the mobile device as a remote. Now they will be able to use Chromecast to turn the TV set into a big screen display for whatever is on your smartphone screen now.


    Screen mirroring is only in beta phase for now, only supporting a few recent models from Samsung, HTC and LG. The Nexus 4 and later are also included obviously and you are required to have version 1.7 of the Chromecast app for Android. People have been finding a Cast Screen option in the Android Quick Settings panel for a while now, but it has been an on and off feature, that sometimes wasn’t there.


    This is basically a Miracast replacement, if you ask me. Anyway, all you need to do is start the Chromecast app and choose the Cast Screen button from the app. Once you’re done, choose the Chromecast from your network on the TV and you’ll see your screen on your set. You can stop casting from the notification drawer, by choosing the Disconnect option. Supported models include LG G3 and G2, Galaxy Note 10 2014 Edition, HTC One M7, Galaxy Note 3, Nexus 7, Galaxy S4 and S5 and a few more.
