Some of the most popular devices out there today can get in on this great new Chromecast feature

Now that Google has finally flipped the switch to enable full-on screen mirroring of your Android device to the Chromecast, everyone is eager to get up and running to project their phone or tablet to the big screen. Whether or not you'll be able to cast its screen to Chromecast and how you accomplish it can be a bit different depending on your device, but we're here to clear things up.

For Nexus and Google Play edition devices running Android KitKat and later, the ability to do screen mirroring to Chromecast is baked right into the operating system and an update to Google Play Services 5.0. For devices running a modified version of of Android, you'll need to be using the updated Chromecast app. In either case, Chromecast screen mirroring is currently in "beta" state and restricted to a small number of popular devices.

If you do happen to have a supported device, you'll be happy to know that the process of getting your Android screen mirrored to your Chromecast is extremely simple. Read along for the details.

Motorola continues to tease with new Moto 360 video

Motorola released a new Moto 360 video on YouTube, detailing the watch's unique cylindrical designed face rather than the square fascia of its rivals in the Android Wear camp. Though the video is new and is a nice promotion to the Moto 360 staying true to classical watch designs, it really is just a teaser and nothing more. Nothing in the video isn't already learned, though it's still a nice watch.

An update to the Google Camera app is slowly making its way out to users, and it includes a neat new feature — a remote shutter button on your Android Wear device. The new version of the app contains an Android Wear component that, when triggered by running the camera app on your phone, will drop a notification on your Android smartwatch that lets you take a picture and then review it afterwards. While this isn't anything new — Pebble has had an app for that for a while now — it's exciting to see it come in a "native" app.
