    I want to Chromecast the Amazon Prime Video app to my HDTV. When I go to the cast option in 5.1 Lollipop it can't find my Chromecast though when I use an app that has Chromecast Support it works fine.

    It won't work with the Chromecast. It's for Miracast. You can still cast from the Chromecast app.

    The cast screen option in 5.1 is for TVs with miracast or something like a roku. To use chromecast, use the chromecast app.

    You can cast to a Chromecast, but not from the "cast screen" toggle in your quick toggles. You have to use the Chromecast app to cast to the Chromecast. Being able to cast from the quick toggle was THE feature I was most excited about with Lollipop. I was devastated to find it didn't work. I love it on my Nexus 7.
