Chromecast app gets Android mirroring support


The Chromecast app on Android is now getting support for screen mirroring, which was long missing from Google’s HDMI media dongle. Google showed off this feature at the recently concluded I/O event and it’s good to know that users can already try it out on their compatible smartphones. At the moment, not all Android devices are supported with this mirroring feature but Google promises to add more devices in the coming days.

Mirroring works exactly as you would imagine and allows users to broadcast whatever is on their phone on a television using WiFi. It’s quite a nifty feature to have and is capable of even mirroring games. The current list of compatible devices are the following:

  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 10
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (standard and GPE model)
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
  • LG G Pro 2
  • LG G3
  • LG G2
  • HTC One M7 (standard and GPE model)

If you own either of the aforementioned devices, make sure you’re on the lookout for an update to the Chromecast app from the Play Store.
