In 2015, Google presented a device focused on content consumption from streaming music, the Chromecast Audio. His price was 39 euros, it was compatible with most music services on demand and is now the time to say goodbye. Google has stopped for you to make it official.
The news came this morning in Reddit when a user reported that the Chromecast Audio that I had bought for Christmas has been canceled, since it had ceased to be manufactured. In fact, if we do agree to the Google store see that the buy button is displayed the text “Out of stock”.
“Our suite of products continues to evolve”
From Xataka Android we have contacted Google to know the status of this device and, indeed, the Big G has confirmed so that the user of Reddit already advanced. According to a spokesperson of the company:
“Our suite of products continues to evolve and we now have a variety of products for users to enjoy the audio. Therefore, we have discontinued the manufacture of our audio products Chromecast. We will continue to offer assistance to devices Chromecast Audio, so that users can continue to enjoy your music, podcasts, and much more.”
Now the Big G has in its catalog of products the Google Home and Google Home Mini, two devices that come to be an evolution of the Chromecast Audio with speakers and Google Assistant integrated. This type of devices has gained great importance in the last few months, so it is understandable that Google wants to bet for them at the expense of older products.
The current owners of a Chromecast Audio will be able to continue to use it until now through the application Home of Google, both Android smartphones as iPhone and iPads.
