Renowned developer Koushik Dutta, who is also affiliated with the CyanogenMod team has been working closely with Google’s Chromecast media dongle. He has now formally shown off his new hack which allows users to mirror Android on a Chromecast dongle. In a new video uploaded by Koush, he shows off how he can play Flappy Bird from his phone and mirror it to his television connected to a Chromecast.
The performance is not very impressive as there’s considerable amount of lag involved, so it’s not really meant for gaming. But if you wish to watch movies or read documents on a big screen, this could serve a very good purpose. The feature will soon be made available for public use, but there’s no ETA at this point. Thanks to a hack like this, users can convert their $30 Chromecast into an Android mirroring tool with relative ease. Fans are hoping that this feature will be added as an update to AllCast, but Koush hasn’t confirmed if that will happen.
