The Google Chromecast Audio is a compact music-streaming device. This device is definitely one of those that I can truly say – “where has it been all my life”. This device allows the user to access their favorite music over Wi-Fi. It works with any speaker – even old speakers that may be hanging around as long as they have an aux input. It converts those old speakers to Wi-Fi capable devices. Then feel free to stream music wirelessly from your phone, laptop or tablet anytime you want. You can also be rest assured you will not get a crackly old record sound from those old speakers – because Google Chromecast Audio uses WiFi instead of Bluetooth, you can stream crystal clear hi res sound.
Listen to your favorite tunes on your speaker
By using your phone, it’s easy to play, pause, or change the volume from anywhere in the home. And while streaming, you can still text or call without interrupting what’s playing or draining your battery. This is amazing. I always have several devices going at the same time due to batteries draining or fear of interruptions.
Crystal clear sound, powered by the cloud
Use Google Chromecast Audio to stream over Wi-Fi which has many advantages over Bluetooth including higher sound quality. You will no longer have to stay within 15 feet of my speaker! That always felt like a “ball and chain”.
Enjoy hundreds of your favorite audio apps
Stream millions of songs, radio stations, and podcasts through apps like Pandora, Spotify, YouTube Music, and Google Play Music. Find more at chromecast.com/apps. All your favorite apps are still available to you and now with great sound and options.
Play music everywhere with Multi-room
Now you can easily fill every room in your home with synchronous music. Simply group Chromecast Audio devices together so you can listen to the same song on multiple speakers. I can think of so many ways this would be helpful – four speakers/four Google Chromecast devices in four corners of a dance hall!
Now is the time to give your home the ultimate flexibility for your music listening pleasure. Personally I can see me blasting my audio books throughout the entire house! Then I don’t have to miss a thing as I am going about all my chores; I don’t have to stop listening to my books to answer the phone; and my kids can get exposure to more books – even though it isn’t through reading. Remember to pick up your Google Chromecast Audio at your local Best Buy!
