If you are a big fan of the Google Chromecast device, it will be getting a new trick soon. The Chromecast was designed to shoot content like photos, music, and video form the Android device to your big screen in the living room. Soon the Chromecast will get the ability to mirror screen content.

That should mean that anything seen on the screen of the Android device could be seen on your big screen. That means everything from your home page to your favorite game app presumably. The ability to mirror the screen will be coming via the AllCast app.

 

 

There will be a bit of lag, as you would get with other screen mirroring solutions like Miracast. The lag isn't expected to affect the ability for users to watch videos. There are a few things that we don't know just yet about the screen mirroring experience.

 

Namely, it's unclear exactly what resolution and frame rates are supported. While the screen mirroring feature is coming to AllCast, it is unclear exactly when it will be available. When it is available, users will have to buy the premium version of the app to get screen mirroring. For more information on the device, check out our Chromecast review.
