Chromecast mirroring starts roll out

Chromecast users rejoice! Looks as though Google has flipped the switch on screen casting from certain Android devices. This opens up a ton of possibilities in using your TV to mirror your Android device while playing games or watching video from unsupported apps. If you are using a supported Nexus device you can try it out using the appropriate casting tile with out needing to wait for version 1.7 of the Chromecast app to hit your device. In typical Google fashion this will be a staged roll out, but only for select devices. I myself have yet to see the update but looks like some are starting to see it now. Check to see if you can expect this feature below.
