Chromecast Audio

Chromecast Audio

An audio version of Google's Chromecast video streamer. Introduced in 2015, Chromecast Audio enables any non-Bluetooth powered speaker to receive music from a desktop or mobile device via Wi-Fi. Like its video counterpart, songs are "cast" to the speaker from a music app. See Chromecast.
