Hey all a quick question. I was gonna buy allshare cast dongle to mirror s4 on the TV but seen Google has done a chrome cast which dies simular. Anyone got one n can u mirror anything on it to your TV?
A word of warning: the ChromeCast is NOT the same thing as an Apple TV. features such as mirroring are limited to whatever apps support it and the Chrome browser on your laptop or desktop computer. if you want to cast Riptide GP2 or some other game to your TV, stick with an iPad and Apple TV. there is no Google clone of that---yet. closest is using Screen Mirroring on a Samsung TV and tablet--which will allow you to do some game mirroring similar to the way Apple TV does, but with hideous lag.
The ChromeCast Dongle is really just the Nexus Q in new clothes.
That's not true anymore. Chromecast now supports full mirroring, but only on certain phones so far. I don't have the list of devices handy, but you can probably guess the usual suspects.

The device list is outdated, I hope! Because it has the HTC M7, but not the M8.
