Google Chromecast Audio allows you to stream music directly from your phone or tablet to a conventional speaker. As an added benefit, it doesn’t drain phone battery while streaming. Google’s products are truly meant to be used with one another, and using the streaming audio player with a Google Home or Google Home Mini lets you control the Chromecast Audio using voice command. All you have to do is say “Google, play jazz music” and it will generate a corresponding playlist of music for you. It’s like something straight out of science fiction.

Google Chromecast Audio Streaming Media Player in action

This small yet powerful device is capable of long range audio streaming in high quality, doing so effortlessly and without interruption in playback. In contrast to Google Chromecast, the Google Chromecast Audio was developed especially for music lovers. The device streams your music library from streaming services, local folders, the Google Cloud or directly from the Chrome browser (the Google Cast plugin is required for browser playback). The variety of playback options which the Chromecast Audio offers is made possible through its WiFi capability. The Google Chromecast Audio connects with a conventional speaker, transmitting music content of up to 24 Bit/96 KHz via WiFi. The technology also spares your smartphone’s battery life. Unlike with Bluetooth speaker systems, the Chromecast device itself handles streaming performance, relieving your playback device. If multiple people are planning to use the device, for example a family member of friend, you can take advantage of the device’s Guest Mode. This allows the Google Chromecast Audio to be used by several people. High-quality playback, unbeatable range, countless playback options and smart streaming over conventional speakers - the Google Chromecast Audio utterly transforms your music listening experience.
