While Chromecast is great for casting YouTube and Netflix to your television, some forget it’s also a very capable mirroring device; any PC user running the Cast extension for Chrome can beam their screen to the streaming stick.
Unfortunately for a few folks, that functionality hasn’t quite been up to par. Thankfully, that might soon change with Google’s announcement of a public Cast beta.
Intended to help the Google team test new features before updating the stable channel, the Cast beta is available for download here.
The new features in this first release are pretty focused on developers, and it’s more consumer-oriented enhancements, such as performance enhancements for mirroring, will see a beta release later.
