In July, Google launched Android screen mirroring via Chromeast with the Chromecast app's "Cast Screen" feature. It had previewed the feature, which automatically makes the Chromecast device roughly a billion times better, at Google I/O earlier in the summer.

The feature launched, but it only supported certain devices. That list has now grown to include the Sony Xperia Z3 series. The unofficial Xperia blog pointed out that the devices were quietly added to the list in Google's support documents. The full list of supported devices is now as follows:

Nexus 4
Nexus 5
Nexus 7 (2013)
Nexus 10
Samsung Galaxy S4
Samsung Galaxy S4 (Google Play Edition)
Samsung Galaxy S5
Samsung Galaxy Note 3
Samsung Galaxy Note 10
HTC One M7
HTC One M7 (Google Play Edition)
LG G Pro 2
Sony Xperia Z3
Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Google still says additional device support is coming soon.

As the device list for Cast Screen support grows, so does the list of supported apps, which recently grew to include Sling, Disney, Twitch, iHeart Radio, DramaFever, and others.
