Default Cast screen to Chromecast

This popped up last night after listening to some music on my Chromecast. There was an option on my quick settings. I tried to connect but it fails. I wonder if Moto is working on this now that the SDK is out.

You've always been able to cast google play music to chromecast. Perhaps that's what it was asking, rather than actual screen mirroring. There is an option for screen mirroring elsewhere in the settings, but it doesn't so anything yet.

I just got the same thing on my nexus 5. I haven't used any media streaming for a few days and my chromecast wasn't even active. I have been trying to find out more but all I can find is the reports about Koush's Google+ post saying that he could do it and reports from December that code for it was in 4.4.1

I just a video he posted on Google+ of him mirroring to Chromecast. Should be close to release then.

Cast screen option from quick settings is completely different than casting specific app, inside said app.
