Chromecast entire screen

On a Windows 7 or Windows 8 PC, will Chromecast be able to cast the PC screen to the TV? Most of the information on the internet talks about casting Chrome browser tab to TV.

Being a Google product, it can cast your Chrome browser windows but that's it. If you're running an Android device, it can cast the entire screen (and other selected apps).

Oh that's interesting - didn't know they'd released that feature. I do have a Chromecast so will have a play tomorrow.

beta apparently - another site said you need to click on the down arrow
