The Sony Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact are the company’s first handsets to gain screen mirroring support for Google’s Chromecast. A recent update to the search giant’s support page added Sony’s two new top-shelf smartphones as officially compatible with the company’s affordable media dongle.

If you recently picked up a Z3 or Z3 Compact and want to share your phone’s display with the biggest screen in your house, launch Google’s Chromecast app and select “Cast Screen.” After that, select your Chromecast stick and watch the sharing begin. Although Sony’s new phones are currently available in limited markets, it’s been reported that the company plans on bringing its larger Z3 to US carriers sometime in the near future.
