Google testing Android screencast support inside Chrome

Matt Brian, @m4tt

Google could be about to make developing and testing mobile websites inside its Chrome browser a while lot easier. As spotted by Chromium expert François Beaufort, the company has included experimental screencast support inside the latest beta version of its desktop browser. It allows developers and tinkerers to connect their Android smartphone or tablet, test code updates and view the results in real time, without having to leave the safety (and comfort) of their desktop. The feature is especially useful for Chrome users who want to ensure their designs look good on different screen sizes and resolutions, or are just getting started in the world of Android development. There's no word on whether Google will make the feature available to the public, meaning you'll have to hit up the Chrome developer channel in order to try it.
