in Sony Tablet, Xperia Z2, Xperia Z3 series


Chromecast iconEarlier this month, Google brought official support for the screen casting function in Chromecast to the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact. Well now Google has expanded that support to a few more Sony devices including the Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet and Verizon’s Xperia Z3v.

The “Cast Screen” function can mirror what is being displayed on your phone to your television. Simply open the Chromecast App and select “Cast Screen” from the navigation drawer. Then select your Chromecast to start casting. It’s great to see a number of Sony flagship devices supported, especially as this feature is still in beta.

    New update for movies. Minor upgrade

  • Gitarooman

    miracast is broken on my z1 and z ultra, keep saying “The output device is not ready or does not support HDCP” after 4.4.4 update.

  • Mohammed Khired

    me too … :( , really sucks…

    but hey , did u unlock the bootloader ? or rooted the phone (without unlocking the BT) ?

  • Gitarooman

    nope, no unlock bootloader nor root. Type this in google appearently this apply to others too. I am suspecting it is 4.4.4 update. but I don’t any thing else with 4.4.4 beside 1st gen nexus 7 which doesn’t support Miracast anyway to test.

  • Z2 and Z3 both are good and it’s screens are great.

  • Gitarooman

    thats weird, lots of people reporting that it doesn’t work with their bravia tv or miracast dongle. Mine just stop working after 4.4.4 update.
