Originally announced at Google I/O 2014 last month, Android mirroring has now arrived on the Chromecast. The feature means you can now see your phone or tablet on your TV, navigating your apps, content, and anything else you want, just in a bigger form.
To start mirroring, fire up the Chromecast app on your Android device, open the navigation drawer, select “Cast Screen” and choose the Chromecast device connected to your TV. If you have a Nexus device, the feature can be accessed through the quick settings menu.
In traditional Google fashion, the feature is launching in beta. You can expect it in Chromecast version 1.7 (rolling out “over the next few days”), with support for “popular” Android phones and tablets from Samsung, HTC, LG, and others.
