Google announced a device called Chromecast Audio today and it’s doing for Music what Chromecast did for the TV. Just so we’re clear, Chromecast Audio and Chromecast are TWO separate devices; Chromecast Audio connects to a speaker or stereo via AUX-IN port and allows you to stream music while Chromecast allows you to stream video to a TV via HDMI connection.
Chromecast Audio pretty much allows you to stream music to a stereo/speaker that doesn’t offer the ability to stream via Bluetooth. There’s already similar products on the market such as the GoGroove Bluegate which allows you to stream audio to any stereo/speaker/etc. via Bluetooth; I’ll admit these devices aren’t the most user-friendly and with Bluetooth you’ll be limited to a certain range of distance.
Let’s see if Chromecast Audio can have the same effect on music as Chromecast had on TV.
