Chromecast require Android 4.4.2 and above

as for lag, it's directly proportional to your wifi intenert speed.

You need an active internet connection for Chromecast to work

Re: Chromecast with xperia sp

I have had no success mirroring screen to a smart tv (I guess it's equivalent to Chromecast). It may work for a minute. Then disconnets. Same with wifi direct. Throw doesn't work at all. But 3rd partu apps like BubbleUpNP work nice with any media files on your phone.

Let me test it, but keep in mind that your Xperia SP won't work
