    All,

    Still playing around with Chromecast and I'm loving the device. I tried casting my PC's Chrome browser onto my TV and it worked (albeit, with a slight delay). However, I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and S4 and want to do the same from those devices. Is that possible?

    You would think Google would have made this a possibility prior to giving that functionality to PCs and Macs. Why would I want to sit at a computer to mirror a browser when I can do so with a tablet or smartphone?

    No, I can plug in an HDMI cable and it screen mirrors, it's because Chrome on Android needs to be updated to handle ChromeCast.

    I wonder is this would be a battery killer.

    Well, thats a bit different. Thats hardware support for a second display.

    There are methods to capture a phone/tablet display to another device, but it they root access. Thats not something that Google wants every Chromecast user doing to their phones.

    Your right that Google could probably get Chrome mobile working, and they very might well be working on it, but It doesnt work as of now.

    From a Note 10, yes - Chromecast (see Chromecast mirroring). It'll mirror your screen to the TV. From any other Samsung tab, you can try the app (the latest version may support devices they haven't added to the web page yet when you're looking at it), but if it doesn't work, you can cast with the latest version of a lot of apps - see Chromecast supported apps.
