Chromecast Audio’s multi-room support has arrived
As promised, Google’s Chromecast Audio now serves as a cheap solution for whole-home audio. The $35 device, which launched in September, brings Internet music sources such as Pandora and Spotify to any “dumb” speaker over 3.5mm, RCA, or Optical input. Users control playback by opening streaming music apps on a phone, tablet, or PC, and hitting the “Cast” button. With multiple Chromecast Audio devices, users can now set up groups of rooms through the Chromecast companion app. Each group will then appear as an option when choosing which Chromecast device the music should play on.
