Google has continuously yet quietly added new hardware to its list of  devices that support Chromecast screen casting. The latest gadgets to gain support for Mountain View’s media dongle are the Google Play edition LG G Pad 8.3 and the Lollipop-laced Nvidia Shield Tablet.

Per Google’s support page, this now raises the number of screen cast-friendly devices to 27. While it sounds like a sizable figure, there’s definitely more smartphones and tablets running Android 4.4.2 or higher on the market than what’s on this list. Perhaps we’ll see more equipment added whenever Google manages to move this feature out of its beta state, but there’s still no clear indication of when that might happen.
