Hi everyone.

First off I apologize if this question was already answered somewhere in the forum, but I did a search and was not able to find an answer to my question. Let me say that I am more than happy with this tablet (I had very bad experience with some old Asus tablets) and this is very good thus far. The only real concern that I have is when you use it in combination with the Google Chromecast. I used it with 2 applications so far, one is Plex and the other one is Deezer and I noticed a very similar behavior: in both cases the applications got closed. Even if they create a background service through the notification in the status bar. Could it be something related to the G Pad itself or could it be something related to the Wifi connection / Chromecast behavior?

Thanks everyone for the help

I just hopped on here to ask a question about Chromecast and my G Pad... Unrelated to your questions. However, I can say i've used Plex extensively and haven't had any issues. Sometimes youtube will do weird things tho.

My question relates to the recent update to chromecast that allows screen mirroring... i've updated my chromecast and my g pad to match the latest firmware and version.

still no setting my chromecast app that says "share screen"

it's there on my nexus 7 2014 tho.

what gives.

Hi there. Sorry if it's a bit obvious answer but not all Android devices are supported for screen mirroring (unless rooted). As per the Chromecast website, only the following devices are officially supported:

Nexus 4 Nexus 5 Nexus 7 (2013) Nexus 10 Samsung Galaxy S4 Samsung Galaxy S5 Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (2014) HTC One M7 LG G Pro2 LG G2 and LG G3 running KitKat MR1 or higher.
