cast

Koushik Dutta, Cyanogen Inc co-founder and developer of the AllCast app that allows Chromecast streaming of local photos and video from your phone or tablet, has posted the above meme graphic hinting at the ability to mirror the entire Android screen to a TV.

Dutta had previously suggested that the functionality might be coming to Android officially … 

He hasn’t given any details, so we don’t know whether this would be an upgrade to AllCast or a completely separate app, but it would certainly be very cool functionality.

It is, though, possible the reason Google hasn’t yet made the feature available is issue with rights holders: some media may be licensed for mobile devices but not for TV usage.
