Miracast

Android 4.2 enables support for the Miracast wireless display-sharing protocol, which lets you wirelessly stream audio and video from your Android device to any compatible HDTV.

Right now, the practical uses for Miracast are limited: First, the feature is hardware-dependent, and the Nexus 4 is currently the only device that has it enabled. Beyond that, there aren't many Miracast TV adapters available yet, and they tend to be pre-standard compliant and not compatible with current hardware.

Google expects to see more adapters, along with Miracast-enabled TVs, on sale throughout the coming year -- and then maybe we'll see something show up under Available Devices.
