Chromecast Already Allow Mirroring in a Small Selection of Devices Android

Google has just announced the launch of one of the features most requested by users of the device Chromecast: the option of making mirroring from our devices to send the entire contents of our Android screen to the TV, including the sound.

The application of Chromecast Android will be updated starting today to the version 1.7 to add the expected choice of mirroring (reproduction in mirror), but it will not be available for all devices. This new option is currently in pilot phase and it is only available to a small number of devices with Android 4.4.1 or above, currently limited to some Nexus, Samsung, HTC and LG.

Compatible Android devices:

  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 10
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (Google Play Edition)
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10
  • HTC One M7
  • HTC One M7 (Google Play Edition)
  • LG G3
  • LG G2
  • LG G Pro 2
  • Sony Xperia Z3
  • Sony Xperia Z3 compact

If we have any of these supported devices you can send the contents of the screen of our Android to our Chromecast to see the entire interface, applications and games on our TV. Once Chromecast application update comes to version 1.7 only have to open the navigation pane, select “Screen Cast” and touch the button Screen Cast and select our Chromecast to start the mirroring.

Devices Nexus don’t have to wait to update the application Chromecast — mirroring can be done by selecting the option “Screen Cast” from the Quick Settings toolbar or from settings > screen > submit content to display.
