I see the quick toggle for screen casting but when I try to toggle it, it just says "No devices available". Anyone having this issue?

I don't think the Moto X is supported, few devices are. Also does not show up in the Chromecast app.

I don't think this is the case. They added it as an experimental feature on 4.4, which only supported a few devices but, to my understanding it is supposed to be a built in feature with 5.0. Since the Moto X is basically stock android, I don't see why it would be disabled. If it wasn't supported, I feel like the toggle wouldn't show up either. I guess I could be wrong though.:cool:

I'm pretty sure only Miracast is supported until the X gets official google cast support.

Doesn't work on my 2nd Gen Moto X either (same error, no devices found), but I got the new Chromecast App and that lets me cast my screen fine. I suspect that there will be an update to have it working with the built in casting feature sometime soon.

I agree, but that's the case. The moto x isn't supported...yet. My nexus 4 & 7 both work on lollipop, but my Moto X doesn't. It's ridiculous, the toggle shouldn't be there if the device isn't supported.

My moto X works with the chromecast app though.

I believe the Moto X (2014) is yet to receive "official" screen cast support. When it does, you should be able to cast via the quick settings menu.

Until then, it is only a beta feature that can be accessed via the Chromecast app (and it actually works pretty well for me, although audio tends to dip in and out)

Mirroring works through the chromecast app, not sure why the toggle doesn't work yet. Might be a switch someone had to flip at the Google machine.
I'm using the Pure Edition, running lollipop of course.

material yolo?

Yes, it is just accessible through the Chromecast's app while it remains in beta for the Moto X. Some devices have had the mirroring enabled on the OS level though. My G Pad GPE let's me mirror to my Chromecast from the quick setting.

Happened with me as well. After upgrading my galaxy s5 to lollipop, chromecast connection was not possible. Tried reinstalling the app, but then I could not even configure again. Here is what I did:
1- Factory reset the device (long press on the button for 25 sec)
2- Download the chromecast PC setup file from cast.google.com/chromecast/setup/
3- Setup the chromecast on PC from support.google.com/chromecast/answer/2998456?hl=en
4- Try connecting again from the mobile app. It should work now, or reinstall the app.
Hope this helps.

I've been able to Cast my screen on my Moto X 2014 Pure edition since I've had the phone. I've always been on lollipop. I participate in soak tests. When my phone updated to the latest version of lollipop, I initially got the same message. But I kept turning Cast Screen on and off until finally it started back working. I use a Belkin miscast adapter on my TV.
