Mirroring Android screens to a Chromecast is coming

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 LTE

You can already send a web page from Chrome to a Chromecast on laptops and desktops; not from Android though. Don’t sweat it; the feature is surely coming either from Google directly or through third-party apps. The developer of AllCast — an Android app that streams local files to a Chromecast — has a working version of software that mirrors your Android screen to a Chromecast. And Google slipped a Chromecast icon directly into Android for a brief time so clearly it’s considering the feature as well.

On this week’s Chrome Show podcast, we discuss these developments as well as a YouTube Chromecasting solution for Windows Phone, new Asus Chromebooks on the way, how to drag and drop Chrome apps into folders in Chrome OS and an extension that creates screencasts on a Chromebook.
