    Cool nexus 4 cast screen

    hi all,

    today I've found a new option in the multi settings screen- "cast screen"

    chromecast is on and when i pressed it got the next MSG: casting screen to ... has failed .

    anyone had any success with that?

    I've attached a few SS

    thanks

    I also got the cast screen option today and it has been working great. Sorry I don't have any pictures because i cant take screenshots due to my volume buttons being jammed. But I can confirm it's working well. I'm running stock on nexus 4.

    It's very nice and now I don't have to buy a miracast adaptor which cost more than a chromecast. How is the audio quality though? I am using Android L on my N4 and the audio is pretty much useless, but I figure it's due to the beta software.

    It's not very hard to replace the Nexus 4 volume buttons, see here: Nexus 4 - Simple fix after volume buttons stopped responding.

    The audio is great as long as you don't play with the phone during that.

    I have a couple of Roku boxes that I stream YouTube to from my N4. The Cast Screen icon is identical to the one I see in YouTube, but I don't have it in Settings. So does it show up there only if you have a Chromecast dongle?
