The Chromecast app in the play store is the one that is working on my girlfriends GS4. The feature is in Beta but the app is just the latest version.

Mine is working now, I did two things so please try them in order (1 first, then if that doesn't work try 2)

1) Clear Cache and Data on the chromecast app, uninstall it, reboot then reinstall from the play store.

See if cast is working

If not try step 2

2) Switch to Dalvik

One (or both) of these two things managed to get screen mirroring working for me.

Success!

I first tried step 1 but no luck. Step 2, switching back to Dalvik did the trick.

And as ART currently makes no real perceptible improvement IMO and experience I'm happy to stick to Dalvik until a bit further down the line.

Cheers LennyUK!
