Google confirms Chromecast Audio has been discontinued

Google confirms Chromecast Audio has been discontinued

And having products like Google Home Max certainly doesn't solve the problem either.

In the wake of more and more devices adding built-in Chromecast support, as well as devices such as smart speakers, Google probably doesn't see much value in continuing the sales of the Chromecast Audio or even releasing a new version.

In the US Google Store the Chromecast Audio is reduced to just $15 and, in many other parts of the world like the United Kingdom, it labeled as out of stock.

Earlier this week, a Reddit post claimed that Google Support had confirmed plans to discontinue Chromecast Audio. The obvious difference between the Chromecast Audio and a regular Chromecast was that the former came with a 3.5 mm jack/mini-TOSLINK socket instead of an HDMI plug. But the company's retail partners often ran discounts and deals on the product, and in the United States the device sold for as low as $15 in the last few weeks. Some other online retailers, such as B&H Photo, now list the product as discontinued, but others continue to sell remaining stock.

Wall Donations Refunded Or Shifted To Non-Profit Effort
The message tells donors they can get a refund if they do nothing or they can redirect their donation to the non-profit. A spokesperson for Brian Kolfage , Jennifer Lawrence, did not immediately respond to emails seeking comment.

For now, the Chromecast Audio is still in stock at a few places, including the Google Store, which has the device for $15-that's $20 off.

Google said that as its product portfolio continues to evolve and they now have a variety of options for users to enjoy audio, they've stopped manufacturing Chromecast Audio.

The Chromecast Audio was launched in 2015 to overnight become the most affordable music streamer this side of a Raspberry Pi. If the TV is hooked up to a proper sound system, though, the experience is more or less the same.
