The company announced this week that it would discontinue Chromecast Audio as it has several other products that allow users to enjoy audio wirelessly. Chromecast Audio is a small 2.5-cm tablet-shaped device with a USB connection on one end and a headphone jack on the other. It connects to your wifi and allows you to play sounds from any application or web page with Google Chrome.

One of the most beloved features of Chromecast Audio was its ability to rejuvenate old audio systems without the ability to play music wirelessly. Of course, not everyone thought it was the most beautiful device in the world.

Although Google is right when it says that there are several devices that do the same as Chromecast Audio, and not all are from Google, users are sorry because there is a similar device at the same price. Chromecast Audio won many fans for its price of $ 35 and its simple but useful capabilities.
