Another day, another dead Google product. Today, Google suspends Chromecast Audio. The company told the Android police that it stopped producing the only version of the Chromecast, so when the current stock ends, the product will probably be gone forever. Here is the full statement to the Android police:
Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy. We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products. We continue to offer help for Chromecast Audio devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.
Chromecast is a popular way to track online media from one device to another. Buttons in YouTube, Chrome, Netflix, Spotify, Soundcloud, Facebook and about one million other apps allow users to easily send media to a monitor or speaker.
While the HDMI version of Chromecast sticks, the audio version, which is connected to an existing speaker or audio system with a 3.5mm connector, is dead. Google's sound plans tend to rotate around smart speakers such as Google Home and other casting functionality devices. But Chromecast Audio was a great way to handle smart functionality for existing or exotic audio settings. It's a shame it's gone.
Currently, Chromecast Audio is still in stock in some places, including the Google Store, which has the device for $ 1
