Microsoft unveils Miracast-powered Chromecast rival Microsoft has thrown its hat into the HDMI dongle ring, launching the Wireless Display Adapter (tad bland on the name there Microsoft) to take on Google's Chromecast and Roku's Streaming Stick.
The device is powered by Miracast, allowing you to quickly share content from your Windows 8.1 devices to the big screen. Just like its rivals, you can fully mirror your mobile device or PC, as well, since Miracast does not have any individual app limitations.

Microsoft is targeting the device for enterprises, as well, due to its quick Office document sharing, such as PowerPoint slides.

The company also confirmed that the Adapter will work with Android devices, as well, although it is less clear what app you will need.

Microsoft has priced the Adapter higher than its rivals, at $59.95, set for release next month.
