Since July 2013, Google has been enabling you to cast audio and video content from your mobile devices and computers onto your HD displays via Chromecast. And now, the tech giant is set to further take on Apples AirPlay wireless media streaming protocol by enabling you to cast audio into speakers using the same streaming technology behind Chromecast, Google Cast.
Google Cast for audio lets you tap the cast button in a compatible music or radio app on iOS, Android, and the Web to stream audio content onto a Google Cast Ready speaker.
Google Cast Ready speakers pull content directly from the cloud, Google notes, so youll get the best audio quality and can freely multi-task on your phone, tablet, or laptop, all without straining the battery.
