Chromecast Audio Streaming Music Adapter

Chromecast Audio Connected to Speaker

Google just introduced Chromecast Audio, a small device that plugs into your existing speakers, so you can stream your favorite music, radio and podcasts over Wi-Fi, similar to Chromecast. It works with tons of apps, including Spotify, Pandora and Google Play Music. Just like Chromecast, it works from anywhere in your home with your favorite devices, including Android, iOS, and laptops.

Chromecast AudioEssentially Chromecast Audio makes any amplified speaker with a 3.5mm input jack a wireless speaker, which happens to be almost every Bluetooth speaker and powered computer speakers. But if you can already stream with Bluetooth, then why do you need Chromecast Audio?

Here are the reasons why Chromecast Audio is better than Bluetooth:

  • Chromecast Audio claims better audio fidelity
  • Because Chromecast Audio streams from the cloud (not your phone) it can save phone battery life
  • Chromecast Audio adds allows connected devices and doesn’t require pairing
  • Chromecast Audio enables mirroring audio from Android phones, tablets, or Chrome browser

For Chromecast enabled apps, users simply tap the “Cast” button from music apps to send the music instantly to your speakers. Search, play, pause, queue songs and change the volume right from your phone — anywhere in the house. There is no need to check if your Bluetooth is paired.

Price and Availability
Chromecast Audio is available now for $35.
