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. Discover more at chromecast.com/audio (http://chromecast.com/audio).

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:

It's an incredible product. That said, could they withdraw support?


Maybe, but with all due respect I don't see very much support needed if you know what I mean. The product does exactly what it says on the tin and not sure how they can really improve it much.
Goose chase but congrats to op for getting one

Great device. Bonehead move on Google's part to discontinue. If anything I bought more Google devices after owning the Chromecast audio (my first Google accessory)

Google is a shitty company that sometimes makes good stuff for a while, before making bad decisions
Worth mentioning google has ended chromecast audio back in Jan this year. Who knows what that means for services in the near future.
Release the geese!

Obviously the reason they are being cleared out. Still a bargain all the same

I can imagine Google might not want to keep supporting them as speakers in the Google home app? That's how I use them, as a Sonos alternative
This is a great price, however not many will be lucky to find it. Visited Currys in Sheffield after a deal on Chromecast was posted, about 3 months ago, they told me last time they had Chromecast in stock was about a year ago. Voted hot anyway, was good even at £14, never mind half price!

Bought one last week for 19.99 because I'd been looking for a while, so this is bloody typical!!

I'm fairly sure they will have had their reasons. You don't really know how much of these they sell, especially with the amount of people buying Bluetooth/Sonos lately
I checked a few stores when these were posted at £14 a few months back and none had any then so I doubt most people will get one of these.
Great for reviving an old stereo system.
Phono adapter - Plug in to Aux and away you go.

They are constantly messing with the code, backends, security etc. of all their devices and for the most part this is transparent to the end user. Thus these devices are never about remaining on the code that left the factory as it was in the old days.

I knew they weren't selling these devices anymore but didn't realise they had ended support. I'll have to do some digging.

"OK Google, play Radio X on house" ..... "Ok playing Radio X from Tune in on house" ....... <silence> generally on the 3rd attempt it works. Used to work fine.

Edit : Can't find anything definitive over the exact end of support date on these and given they announced the end of sales in Jan then I'd expect them to support them for a couple of years after that, if not longer. Also the rumour is the new mini 2 to be released later this year will have an aux out, thus sort of replacing the need for the cc audio albeit in a bigger package and I'm not sure if it will have digital out. To be honest the feature that I find is missing from the cc audio is the smart speaker function.

i plugged mine in a little guitar amp I had. awesome
Can't find it
None available it seems.
Went back for another one today for my brother and the following stores in Scotland have stock - Uddingston, Ayr and Coatbridge.
Just checked in Bath. Nothing. He ran a check for other stores and said nothing in South West. Doh
Nowt in Ashton under Lyne
Just by way of information there is no stock in any Currys/PCWorld in Northern Ireland. I was sad enough to phone them all this morning.

It's not just about the hardware though - Google has a history of messing with software and breaking compatibility.

They've slowly been removing casting support from their products (Chome for example). They've also stopped the ability to send audio from Youtube videos to this device on iOS: reddit.com/r/g…io/

I'm a heavy Google user, but I'm under no illusion that they slowly kill products by 'updating' things / no including features in future releases that work fine.

That's the go getter attitude we are looking for!!!
None in Croydon (checked in person) and London Old Kent Road (called them).
Good price
Seems a steal. Bought a cheap Bluetooth dongle to do the same thing. Quality is poor and connection drops out when I leave room. This seems far better.

Take it back.
One of these at chicken feed money, cheap micro amp off amazon/fleabay and you can breath life in to any old massive 2000w floor standing speakers and run a full streaming set up rave / discotheque style!!

They stopped supporting CC Audio long back on the Android Youtube app also. The only way you can cast to CC audio nowadays is via the CastScreen option from the pulldown menu or using the Google Home app... My wife's Note 9 can't cast to this even via google home app. Typical google's arrogance towards continuied product support.

I thought all cc devices had to be part of the google home app as that is where you configure them. Mine are working ok through all the apps that support cc although I tend not to cast yt.
These are awesome devices and I keep buying them to keep "just in case one day". I can only think they're killing it as the new Google gone mini has 3.5mm out?

That's the same thing I have to do to cast youtube to google home mini speakers, so not just for chrome cast audio. Annoying , but probably because youtube is classified to be video not just audio.
How much power does it uses? Could I possibly hook up in my car aux for this?
