    I have a 9" Irulu 16 GB Android 4.4 tablet about a week ago.
    Just bought a chromcast, the new version.
    I have limited experience with Android tablet and none in Chromcast.
    After a long search, I found out I had to install the Chromcast app from Google Store. Nobody told me that.
    I did that and I am now able to watch movies on my TV by clicking at the Chromcast icon at top right corner.
    BUT, I have no idea how to play games on TV. Games were installed from Google Play Store.
    When I open a game, I cannot see the Chromcast icon like I see in movies.
    Need someone to teach me.
    Thank you.

    Basically Chromecast is for movies and videos, for apps that support it. And not for general screen mirroring to a TV.

    The chromcast package box has Google Play listed.
    The followings are on the list ( in logo and in name )...................
    You Tube, Netflix, Crave TV, MLB.TV, Shomi, (a logo I do not recognize), and lastly Google Play.

    Sorry. That is not it.
    Before I posted the question here, I had already tried that link.
    I installed the Angry Birds. I can play it in my tablet, but not on TV.
    In short, there are no "games" that can be played on TV using chromecast.
    I have to go back and use the hdmi cable.

    Thank you.
    Sorry to say, that article does not help me on how to play games on TV.
    I had read that article while I was trying to figure out how to "set me up". I am aware of it.

    Thank you for trying.
    I'll resort to using the hdmi cable for now.

    Oh Wait !.
    I got it.
    Thank you, svim, for the article. After reading it again. I realize I misunderstood what it said.

    OK, I can play games now. Thank you very much, svim.
