    From the comments (and my own personal experience) this might be a OS-X only feature at the moment. Does anyone on Windows get the "Cast entire screen" option?

    Very interesting! So now Chromecast is officially a much cheaper alternative to Intel's wireless display!

    As cool as it is, it is nowhere close to wi-di. It has really really bad lag when it's casting a tab. The videos I've watched (Youtube and netflix) are great quality, no artifacting, and no lagging. The tab casting is a completely different story. Hopefully they can fix that all.

    I should really pick one up. I'm so sick of having to plug in my S3...

    Casting entire desktop? How are you doing that?

    I have windows 7. 64-bit if that matters. And I just downloaded the Chrome cast extension for the desktop Chrome yesterday. I can only cast individual tabs. I don't see that "cast entire desktop" option.


    EDIT: ok, now I see it. You have to click the little triangle to select it. Cool. The resolution is 720p instead of my desktop resolution 1080. But kind of a neat feature. Hope they get it working at 1080.

    Im on Mountain Lion and its there. Its the little downward facing triangle thingie..top right of the extension. Click around, its there.

    P.S. And while tab casting works pretty good. Desktop casting...on my 2010 iMac, no bueno. Lots of beach ball twirling.

    SO i had a question, i can cast the entire desktop however is there a way to multi task while doing that.. so far example i wanna play a movie and also work on desktop.. I know if i do tab casting i can Alt+Tab and continue doing other work however since screen casting shows your current screen this wouldn't work... Any one has any ideas?

    I tried installing Dexpot which creates multiple virtual desktops however chromecast will pick the desktop i move to, hence rendering this solution ineffective.. I guess VM's might be another way.. Any other suggestions will be appreciated..

    The only solution is to use two monitors.
