Google adds mobile mirroring to Chromecast

Thursday 10 July 2014 | 09:09 CET | News
Google has added a "mirror" function to its Chromecast device, allowing users to see what's on the screen of their Android phone or tablet on the TV screen at the same time. To start mirroring, they select "Cast Screen" in the Chromecast app. This feature is in beta and will roll out on popular Android phones or tablets from Samsung, HTC, LG and others over the next few days, Google said. The 1.7 update of the Chromecast app on Google Play will enable the new feature.
