Before features officially make it to the Chrome browser, they’re always added as test versions that can be enabled by the brave and adventurous. And thanks to François Beaufort, we find out many of these secrets before they reach a finished state. The newest feature found is Android screencast support in the browser.

If you’re wondering what the use of this is, it’s for testing websites on mobile devices. Once your smartphone or tablet is hooked up to your computer and this feature is enabled, you’ll be able to see your device’s display on your computer in real time. And in real time, you can modify the website and immediately see how it changes on the device. It’s an incredibly useful feature for those who develop mobile sites that aren’t terrible.

If you’re interested in checking it out, watch the video below. And if you want to use it for yourself, hit the source link and check the instructions for how to enable this feature right now! Have fun, and tell us if you find this feature useful!

    This is a cool feature! I sure hope more web developers take advantage, sometimes I am on some really janky mobile sites!
