Screencasting from Nexus devices, HTC One M7, and more is now live
While Google demoed its plans for screencasting from Android devices to televisions at Google I/O last month, no one quite knew how long it would be until this feature would finally go live for the public. Apparently, the wait wasn’t very long, as Google has apparently enabled screencasting on a number of Android devices, including the Nexus 5 and HTC One M7. This feature requires Android 4.4.1 or higher.
Here’s the full list of supported devices:
- Gooogle Nexus 4 by LG
- Gooogle Nexus 5 by LG
- 2013 Google Nexus 7 by ASUS
- Google Nexus 10 by Samsung
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10
- 2013 HTC One M7
- LG G Pro2
- LG G2
- LG G3
On these devices, you can access the casting menu in display options and select your Chromecast, or other compatible device.
And finally, at long last, the option to cast your screen that has appeared and disappeared from the Quick Settings on Nexus device also appears to be working, and to top things off, the Chromecast app was also updated to support this feature as well.
Go ahead – try it out, and let us know how it works for you. If you happen to get it working on a device that’s not listed above, let us know that, too.[Android Police]
