How to Chromecast onto Multiple Screens

Have you had the need to cast a presentation, video, or some slideshow onto multiple screens using Chromecast and wish there was an easy way to do it? Google does offer this feature but there are several apps that enable you to do this. We recently came across a situation where there will be a dinner banquet and we wanted to use the hall’s multiple HDTV across the venue. The TV’s were not connected to a single source but had WiFi network. What we wanted to do was to cast a video to multiple HDTV receivers. After some research, we went with AirParrot. AirParrot does exactly this.

Through their software, you can control your source and destination(s). You can also select audio only and not send the video. There are also some controls to pause or blank the screen. Not only can you select output for Chromecast, you can also select Apple TV as well.

Google Cast Screen Mirroring Coming Soon To Chromecast

Google Cast Screen Mirroring Feature Comes To Chromecast

This is the moment a lot of people have been waiting for. A native way to cast a mirror image of your Android device will soon be available. Google announced at I/O this year that they will be releasing an update to Chromecast where it will have a feature to mirror your exact image on your Android device. This will allow you to show people what is on your screen from Maps, GMail, Instagram, eBay, Flipboard, well.. basically everything!

This directly competes with AirPlay function and eliminates Apple TV’s advantage. I just checked my Chromecast app which is running v1.7.4 and the ‘Cast Screen’ option is not available yet. You can check yours by going to the navigation drawer of the Chromecast app.
