Another day, another dead Google item. Today, Google is stopping the Chromecast Audio The business informed Android Cops it has actually stopped making the audio-only variation of the Chromecast, so when the existing stock goes out, the item will probably be gone permanently. Here is the complete declaration provided to Android Cops:

Our item portfolio continues to develop, and now we have a range of items for users to take pleasure in audio. We have actually for that reason stopped making our Chromecast Audio items. We will continue to use help for Chromecast Audio gadgets, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.

The Chromecast is a popular method to beam online media from one gadget to another. Buttons in YouTube, Chrome, Netflix, Spotify, Soundcloud, Facebook, and about a million other apps enable users to quickly send out media to a screen or speaker.

While the HDMI variation of the Chromecast is staying, the audio variation, which linked to an existing speaker or stereo with a 3.5 mm jack, is dead. Moving forward, Google’s audio strategies appear to mainly focus on wise speakers like the Google House and other gadgets with cast performance integrated in. However the Chromecast Audio was a fantastic method to add wise performance to existing or unique audio setups. It’s an embarassment it’s gone.

In the meantime, the Chromecast Audio is still in stock at a couple of locations, consisting of the Google Shop, which has the gadget for $15– that’s $20 off. I think that makes it an inventory-clearance sale, so get it while you can.
