    Default Will Chromecast allow me to use a 2012 Nexus 7 model with it?

    For streaming games from the tablet to tv?

    No tablet or phone can do that with chromecast.

    You can't send content like that from the tablet yet. I may be wrong but I do think there is a wired solution for the Nexus 7 though.

    ****edit never mind what I was thinking of is on the new one. Could try maricast but I have heard mixed things on that.

    Miracast is definitely not supported by the 2012 N7.

    And as has been said, No, you can't. The chromecast is compatible with the N7 but it's not designed to stream games and such.

    Yea just looked it up. The N10 got it but the 7 never did. Sol I think

    Best bet may be to look into a android based mini pc from Minix. Them just run the games from it. Unlike the ouya it will just grab straight from play store.
