Hey guys I just noticed yesterday in the display options is an option called cast screen. When pressing this option it says no devices found.

My question is with this option available does this mean I can mirror my tablet to my tv? And if so will chromecast support this or do I need a miracast adaptor?

I have the first nexus 7(2012) model on 4.4.2

Thanks in advance

I have the same question. I noticed this option on my Nexus 5 but not sure if it was there on 4.4 or showed up on 4.4.1 or 4.4.2. Hopefully somebody chimes in.

I tried to get it working with my Netgear PTV3000, but it wouldn't work. I'm assuming it only works with a Chromecast adapter.

I read two sources stating that chromecast will soon have screen mirroring but how reliable are the sources? I have ordered one anyway so hopefully mirroring does come to chromecast. Until then I'm happy to view what's available so far

Cast screen works perfectly between Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 and Sony 42W650A... Sometimes, the connection fails while casting but hey, it works

It is supposed to be Miracast. If you have a receiving device that supports it, it should work.
It's just another Galaxy...
