Chromecast's new trick: Anything you see on your phone you can see on your TV

Chromecast's new trick: Anything you see on your phone you can see on your TV

Chromecast users sure have something to be excited about.

Owners of the $35 streaming device will soon be able to share everything from their phone or tablet on a TV screen, a feature that made its debut at the Google I/O conference. 

Chromecast product manager Ambarish Kenghe said in a blog post:

"Now, anything on your Android device will appear on the TV. You can share photos stored on your phone with a group of friends, or scope out the scenery for your next family vacation together on the big screen using Google Earth."

According the Google's blog post, all you need to do to get started is select "Cast Screen" from the navigation bar inside the Chromecast app.

To start mirroring, simply select “Cast Screen” from the navigation drawer in the Chromecast app and select your Chromecast device.  That's it.
