Chromecast Audio was one of the novelties that Google presented along with the Nexus and that, although it was a relevant launch, it did not have all the prominence. One might think that it is a more useless device than Chromecast 2, but the truth is that it is not, it can be a great solution, because with it you can give a new life to your much more expensive sound equipment.
An updated team for 39 euros
And it is that for some reason, there are many who in their day decided to spend a relatively high amount of money to buy quality sound equipment. With the passage of time they have not updated this equipment, and because of this it has become a somewhat useless equipment in this era of streaming music, and Bluetooth headphones. However, thanks to Chromecast Audio we can give a new life to the team. For only 39 euros, we can get the equipment to be able to be connected to the Internet to listen to streaming music in high quality.
Basically, Chromecast Audio connects to the Internet through our WiFi connection. We use the mobile, the tablet, or the computer, to send what we want to listen to to Chromecast Audio. That does not mean that our mobile will send the audio to Chromecast Audio, which would complicate the connection and would probably result in poorer audio quality. It’s not like that. When we select what we want to listen to, Chromecast Audio connects directly to the Internet for streaming. That is, our mobile, tablet or computer does not spend additional battery. The great advantage is that Chromecast Audio must be connected to the electrical network, so it will not drain any batteries.
It is perfect for stereos that we have at home, which are also usually remarkably expensive, and that now only require a device of 39 euros to be able to update them and turn them into completely wireless equipment.
