Chromecast app updates with mirroring support on select Devices [APK Download]

by John_A


Google I/O produced a ton of new stuff that we all drooled over. Much of what was seen won’t be available until later this fall sadly. However, one feature they demonstrated for the Chromecast is finally making its way to devices. Today Google has pushed an update to the Chromecast app that enables the screen mirroring function.

If you happen to own any of the currently supported devices from the list below, you should be able to cast anything and everything that you see on your device’s screen right to your Chromecast connected TV. Google states the ‘cast screen’ feature is still beta so you can expect some conflicts here and there.

  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 10
  • Samsung Galaxy S4
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 (GPE)
  • Samsung Galaxy S5
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 3
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 10
  • HTC One M7 (GPE)
  • LG G3
  • LG G2
  • LG G Pro 2
  • Support for additional devices coming soon


I got the update and installed it on both my Xperia Z and Xperia Z1s and was hopeful it would at least offer the option, but no dice. Hopefully it gets more device support in short order. If you don’t see the update in the Play Store yet you can always just hit up the gappsearly link below and sideload it. Let us know if it happens to work on any devices that aren’t listed too.

Tip: You might need to restart your Chromecast device after updating. We have heard that has triggered the cast screen side menu item for a few people.
