Android Presentation API
As part of the recent support for Android Mirroring, developers can now use the Android Presentation API with Google Cast devices. The Android Presentation API was introduced in API level 17 to support secondary displays: http://goo.gl/m4L36A
This means that when a user uses Android Mirroring, your Android app can display a different user interface on the mobile device than what is displayed on the Google Cast device.
We have released a sample app that explains how to use the Android Presentation API with Google Cast devices: http://goo.gl/pCvkU0
The sample app uses the MediaRouter API to choose a presentation display.
Note that users first have to start the Android Mirroring session before the Presentation API will be able to use the Google Cast device as a secondary display.
We're looking forward to see what interesting apps developers create that leverage the multi-screen architecture of Google Cast.
Happy Casting!#googlecastsdk #chromecast #googlecast
