Cast your Android screen from the Chromecast app

Cast all of your favorite apps, photos, games, and more from your Android device to the big screen. Casting your Android screen allows you to mirror your Android phone and tablet to the TV so you can enjoy your great content exactly as you see it on your mobile device—only bigger.
