Google has as of now been greatly fruitful with its affordable $35 Chromecast media streamer yet it now has its eyes determined to making some real progress on Apple’s Airplay pie. The Mountain View-based Internet search titan today announced Cast for Audio, which would empower users to play audio from their devices straightforwardly to compatible speakers by touching a button.
Google Cast for Audio will work on devices including Android and iOS smartphones and tablets or on the Internet through Chrome browser. The Google Cast for Audio works as same as Chromecast where users will need to press/click on the cast button to stream audio content through applications on to compatible speakers.
One major contrast in the middle of AirPlay and Cast for Audio is that Google’s answer won’t audio from the device to the speaker. Rather it will stream audio specifically from the cloud to the speaker, guaranteeing there is no audio quality loss.
Google is working with speaker brands to manufacturer Google Cast Ready speakers. The initial partners to include Google Cast for Audio are Sony, LG and Heos by Denon. Google states it will work to add more brands to join later this year and has already tied up with chipset manufacturers Broadcom, Marvell, MediaTek and system integrator Libre Wireless.
