Chromecast just got a little bit more awesome

Google’s popular Chromecast streaming stick is about to receive a functionality update that was first announced during Google I/O. By simply selecting the “Cast Screen” option from the Chromecast app, users will now be able to mirror their Android smartphone or tablet’s screen to your television.
Users will no longer have to wait on a case-by-case basis to see if their favorite app will support casting to a Chromecast.

Google says that the feature is currently in beta, but will be available within the next week via a new update for the Chromecast app (ver. 1.7). Unfortunately, just because you own Android smartphone/tablet doesn’t mean that you’ll be able to take advantage of this new functionality.

According to Google, only a handful of devices from HTC, LG, and Samsung are supported initially, although support for additional devices is “coming soon.”
