Koush teases Android mirroring to Chromecast
Koushik Dutta of CyanogenMod fame is teasing fans with support for screencasting Android to the Chromecast, a feature that might be coming soon to his AllCast app.
Koush has been one of the most prominent independent developers for the Chromecast, having released an early app for streaming local content from Android devices to Google’s HDMI stick. After a hiatus caused by Google’s decision to restrict API access to select partners, Dutta was able to bring back the highly desired capability to his AllCast app last week, when Google released a public SDK for the Chromecast.
Now it seems Koush is gearing up to bring another great capability to AllCast – the ability to mirror the screen of an Android device to a TV, via the Chromecast. The feature will probably work just like Mirror, an app for screencasting to Apple TV, that Koush released last year. Here is Mirror in action:
Details are scarce for now, but we will sure keep an eye on Koushik Dutta’s exploits in the future. Have you tried out the updated AllCast with your Chromecast? What’s your take on it?
