Chromecast can finally mirror your Android device's screen

The HDMI dongle of Google is getting a little update which has something to do with accessing our phone data on a television. With Chromecast you will be able to have your phone’s screen displayed on your living room television. This feature was demonstrated on the stage with Google Earth and even Android's video camera app.

A little more personalization is also being added to the HDMI dongle with the Google+ photo albums with which you can customize the images of that ambient feed. In case you don’t want your album pictures here, you can search through the geographically filtered pictures from Google's vast image catalog. It is to be kept in mind that your albums are curated by Google, so they're ensured (in theory) to be safe and high quality. This feature called Backdrop will be available this summer.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
