Mirror your Android Screen to Chromecast, There’s an App for That!

I posted a question on the Chromecast forum the other day. Is there any app that will stream video from my Android phone to a Chromecast connected TV?

But then today, ace developer Koushik Dutta announced Mirror for Android in beta. And this app streams entire Android screen live on to Chromecast, and can even record the whole time.

At this point you also need a rooted Google Nexus 5 running Android 4.4.2 to use the Mirror app. But you will soon see this app coming to more Android phones, and will work even without root access.

If you are lucky enough to be in that category, here is what you need to do.
