I want to mirror the content from a Chrome desktop tab on my Android device.

Is it possible to cast a Chrome browser tab from desktop to an Android (OS 8.1) device?

You can install WebRTC Desktop Sharing extension on your Chrome browser for Desktop. Click on its icon → Chrome tab + Speakers → choose your tab to share → wait for the extension to give you a URL.

Use that URL into your Android device's browser. It will take few seconds to initialize everything and then you can have a real-time Chrome tab sharing from Desktop to anywhere.

Alternatively, if you are using Windows, enable Remote Desktop Sharing in it, setup a Remote Desktop connection and use Chrome Remote Desktop app to share the whole screen with Android. I haven't tested this one though.

As far as "Cast" goes, you can only cast to Chromecast devices or Android TV devices from cast-enabled devices. Not from other devices to your phone.

What you can do is use apps like Splashtop or TeamViewer, to "handle" or use your computer from the mobile device.
