On the off chance that you’ve been pondering whether to get a Chromecast Audio to make your sound setup somewhat more astute, you ought to likely influence your mind rapidly. Google has affirmed it’s ceasing the gadget.
“Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio,” a spokesperson told9 to 5 Google. “We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products. We will continue to offer assistance for Chromecast Audio devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.”
The writing has been on the wall for quite a while, as Google has sold the gadget for $15 (down from $35) since Black Friday. The blasting prominence of smart speakers truly sounded the demise toll for Chromecast Audio, to a limited extent since they also are frequently modest – Google is as of now offering the Google Home Mini for $29, less than the Chromecast Audio’s underlying cost.
Furthermore, with voice assistants, (for example, Google Assistant) heated into smart speakers, you don’t really need to utilize your telephone, tablet or PC to begin playing something on them, not at all like with Chromecast Audio. Likewise, similarly, as with that gadget, many smart speakers can interface with your current sound setup, so Chromecast Audio’s moment in the sun dependably appeared to be bound to be a short one.
