You can now mirror your screen when using a Chromecast with the Note 3 running 4.4.2. Go into Settings >More Settings >Screen Mirroring to enable screen casting through your Chromecast.

I don't think that's how it works. You need the updated Chromecast apk. Through that, cast to screen is available, but I just get a "Google Play Services has stopped" error and the TV screen goes black.

Yeah you have to have the chromecast apk version 1.7. It's rolling out slowly in the play store. I don't have it yet

One of you want to share theirs?

Perhaps. Do you know what version of Google Play services you have?

Mine was manually updated to 5.0.77

Then it auto updated to the version in my pic.

It's good for sharing photos and playing games with it is alright but there is lag but you kinda of expect that with it being in beta
