Goodbye Chromecast Audio, we will not miss you

Chromecast Audio

Sarah Tew/CNET "Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio". But even though people continue to buy the regular Chromecast, which turns regular TVs into smart TVs, the Chromecast Audio didn't exactly find a favour with consumers. As nice as the Google Home Max is, it's no replacement for a proper set of hi-fi speakers.

The product's discontinuation was first spotted by a United Kingdom -based Redditor who posted that Google cancelled their Chromecast Audio order, with customer support confirming that it was because the product is no longer in production. "We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products", said Google. Google is now on its 3rd generation of regular Chromecast devices, but in 2015 they launched the Chromecast Audio. Still, there are already thousands of traditional speakers without any casting ability at all that could benefit from Chromecast Audio. It was already a steal at $35; at $15, you better grab them while they last.

The good news is that the Alphabet Inc. -owned company will continue to offer support for the Chromecast Audio hardware, as per the statement, which means that owners who are still using the device regularly aren't going to be left high-and-dry. But the Chromecast Audio was a great way to tack on smart functionality to existing or exotic audio setups. The Chromecast Audio could be connected to a speaker using the line-in or optical input and then the music could be played or streamed on the speaker using Wi-Fi and compatible apps.
