Latest update to Chromecast app allows screen mirroring

Google Chromecast

Chromecast has been a very useful device for many of us. I use mine nearly every day, when it’s feeling kind enough to work without hanging, and absolutely love it. But there is a feature missing that it seems quite a few people want: screen mirroring.

Luckily, the latest update to the Chromecast app makes it possible to mirror the entire display of your phone to your Chromecast! The update brings the app up to version 1.7 and brings this beta feature to people with a compatible device. Recent devices from LG, HTC, Samsung and Google itself are currently supported, and more are expected to come later on

It’s nice to finally get this feature, though we’ll have to wait a few days for it to roll out to everyone (I still haven’t gotten the update). Will you be using this feature, and what for? Leave a comment!
