Chromecast Audio connects any speaker to your smart device

Media Streamers
[MUSIC] We have no simple way to connect them to [INAUDIBLE] which is about our phones. So with Chromecast audio, we can take your existing speakers and make them smart. So let's say I'm at home and I wanna listen to my home speaker. So let's go ahead and bring up my Nexus device. The first thing you're gonna notice is that Chromecast Audio works with all the top audio apps that already work with Chromecast today, including Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more. For now let's open up Google Play Music, which is the app I use for my daily listening. So you'll see I'm already logged in. Now Chromecast Audio is automatically detected by Play Music. So we just simply press the cast button, and you see a new device type speakers. You can see this is very familiar. We modeled it exactly after Chromecast. Regardless of whether you are casting to a television or to a speaker, we believe the experience should be simple and consistent. So go ahead and select the device. [SOUND] Here's nice little audio confirmation that you're now connected. And that's it. We don't have a complicated pairing process. And now, I can just listen to my tunes. [MUSIC] We're streaming the highest quality audio, through Wi-Fi, to my old home speaker. And because I'm streaming from the cloud, I can get rid of all the hassles of Bluetooth. The music won't drain the battery in my phone. I can play on any speaker, in any room in the house, without losing audio. And I won't hear those annoying ringtones every time someone gives me a call.
