Yesterday, a post on Reddit said that Google’s little music streamer that could, Chromecast Audio, had been discontinued. Sadly, that turned out to be true: according to an official statement from Google obtained by Android Police, the device is no longer being manufactured.
Here’s Google’s full statement:
With the myriad speakers available with Chromecast functionality baked in, consumers won’t be hurting for ways to stream music at home, but the discontinuation of Chromecast Audio is still a crying shame. The device is cheap, simple, and can add Wi-Fi streaming to any speaker with an auxiliary jack. Units are currently available for $15 (that’s $20 off their original $35 MSRP) from a number of outlets, though, so go snag a few before it’s too late.
