Chromecast audio is just like chromecast but for audio it’s a small device that plugs into your speakers for streaming music through a wi-fi connection not a Bluetooth connection it shares a similar design as the 2015.
Chromecast Audio Specification:
- High fidelity streaming audio from the cloud
- Wireless control from anywhere in your home
- Multitasking without interrupting your music
- 2.5/5GHz Wifi with adaptive antenna
- Android devices, iPhone®,iPad®, Mac®, Windows®, Chromebook
Speaker Input Supported:
Chromecast as it looks like a hockey puck and it still requires a micro USB cable to power the device but instead of an HDMI cable you have this 3.5 millimeter idea jack that plugs directly into the speaker of your choice
The general idea is that Chromecast audio will transform your connected it done speakers into connected smart speakers, so once again I walk you through the steps connecting a chromecast audio.
You will need to do is plug 3.5 millimeter headphone jack into your speakers of choice and plug the micro USB charging
