What is Chromecast Audio?
Chromecast Audio is a small device that plugs into your speakers for streaming music over Wi-Fi. Once set up, simply use your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows laptop or Chromebook to cast your favourite music, radio stations and podcasts to any speakers in the house.

Easily cast music to your speakers.
Tap the Cast button from your music apps to instantly play on the speakers. Play, pause and turn up the volume right from your phone, anywhere in the house.

Listen to your favourites, any time.
Millions of songs, radio stations and podcasts from apps like Spotify, Google Play Music and other favourites.

Cast any audio from your Android phone or Chrome browser.
Hear anything playing on your Android phone or tablet on your speakers. Cast any music streaming website from your laptop through Chrome.

Higher quality sound.
Enjoy your favourite artists the way they were meant to be heard. Chromecast streams straight from the cloud so you get continuous high-quality sound, even when you leave the room.

Enjoy your music without interruption.
Casting will not drain your battery or get in the way of other activities. Answer a call, surf the web, even leave the room, all without interrupting your music.

Plug in and listen.
Get started in 3 easy steps:
1. Plug Chromecast Audio into your speakers and turn on;
2. Download app and connect the Chromecast to your Wi-Fi;
3. Tap the Cast button from your favourite music apps to hear it on the speakers.

This version of chromecast will not work with Stadia and is not 4k

Most speakers have Bluetooth nower days..how does this differ?


It uses WiFi so does not need line of sight. Therefore greater range, works between several walls, lower demand on mobile battery, but.....would require mobile hotspot if you wanted to use it in a car or go places with it. You can also have the same song in synchronisation on serval chromecasts at the same time, group them and individually control their volumes.....if you wanted that. Instead of working with a Bluetooth speaker this will work with any speaker with a microphone input or (if you have an adapter) any other analogue inputs.

That's a bargain, although I hear Google are discontinuing them, but hopefully they'll still work.

Yes, they are not making them anymore! But still, this is an amazing piece of kit! I use it every day
Bought a few but never got round to using them properly after I realised you’d have to leave whatever stereo it’s connected to on permanently.
Have users found a way round this this?
I bought an Alexa input for this price or near abouts, I have a couple of these in a drawer somewhere as not as useful but a couple of years back I agree worthwhile but today I would say not.

Optical output - if you have an amp or DAC with optical input, you can use it to stream CD quality music to high quality hifi systems.

Bluetooth is also great for when there's patchy or no WiFi. With offline playlists on Spotify it means you can still listen even if the internet goes down which I've had to do a couple of times, annoyingly!

I use a smart plug on my stereo to a multi socket extension lead and plug everything in, including the Chromecast. 'Hey Dougal, turn the downstairs stereo on'

When you leave your music on all the time or are listening to an album and then you get a call come through or start getting WhatsApp/text/messenger notifications on your phone the while Bluetooth experience is awful in comparison. I used to use Bluetooth walk away from speaker put my phone on charge to power it stop it cutting out as phone would need to be near speaker. This is just lot better. I also send music to zones so upstairs, downstairs or whole house when hovering/cleaning up.

Have one even in the garden shed linked to a mini amp and outside speaker only place don't have but want is bathroom. Other half isn't keen on me cutting speaker hole in the ceiling.

Amp wise I use the ever popular cheap option have 4 of these, for when not on a hifi, soundbar.

Wouldn't a Bluetooth 3.5mm aux adapter be a much cheaper option, giving you exactly the same (if not more not needing WiFi) functionality?

Depending on the source the quality can be much higher with the Chromecast, it does the streaming itself so taking the strain off your phone, WiFi has far better, more reliable range and a decent quality Bluetooth adaptor is likely more expensive too.
Much better quality sound via higher bandwidth of Wi-Fi Vs Bluetooth...

Uses wifi, not Bluetooth! More stable! Also when casting music, it doesn't stop if you receive a text or a phone call! Can be used with google voice assistant

Smart plug to turn the electricity on and/or broadlink ir transmitter to turn it on from standby and set it to the right input. Tasker should be able to help you automate it all

Smart power switch for the stereo or timer switch
A lotta people here asking why this is better than Bluetooth. For a single speaker setup they're kinda superfluous. I have speakers all over the house and they're all hooked up to chromecasts. I can play music to any of them, or a selection of them at any time. I can also play different music in different rooms. I can control volume as a whole or on a per-speaker basis. I mostly cast Spotify from my phone, but you can also cast from any computer or laptop that has chrome installed. I can set music playing on the speakers and then connect to my headphones and watch YouTube while other people enjoy the music. Guests with Google accounts can cast to my chromecasts without having to worry about connecting to wifi or anything else.

In short, chromecasts excel for multiroom, multi speaker setups.
Also while I'm here: an entry level amp, a set of bookshelf speakers or studio monitors and a chrome cast will likely cost you less than a single sonos (or equivalent) speaker, will be easier to set up and will sound better...

Is there any way to use this via DLNA or some other non-Google Cast protocol?

This does WiFi and has an optical digital output.
I have my current Chromecast audio in my bedroom feeding a Chord Mojo DAC with the optical digital output. Means I can play all the FLAC files on my computer which is in the lounge.

A sonos is literally a smart bookshelf speaker. You can also have your amp and chrome cast anywhere in the room, though I do appreciate it's more plugs and more wires. Guess it depends what you value more: quality or convenience.
