The move, trailed at last month’s Google I/O conference, means that Chromecast now has the same feature for Android phones that Apple’s rival AirPlay offering has for iOS devices.

Chromecast users can now select the CastScreen feature on their navigation menu in the Chromecast app and select their Chromecast device. On Nexus devices, the feature is also available through the quick settings menu.

The feature is currently in beta and will roll out on popular Android phones from Samsung, HTC, LG and other over the next few days as part of the Chromecast app version 1.7 update.
