Google's ChromeCast 2.0 will offer streaming audio, Spotify and more
More details are emerging around the ChromeCast devices due to be announced next week - 29 September. As well as a new HDMI ChromeCast, an audio dongle will also be announced which will bring streaming audio from the internet to your speakers.
Similar in functionality to an Apple Airport Express, the device will most likely integrate with a 3.5mm headphone jack to connect to your speakers.
It will be very interesting to see how Google approach this seeing as previous consumer audio products such as the Nexus-Q failed to gain any traction when it was launched a few years ago.
The device could power multiple speakers in different zones which would be managed by an Android app. Hardly anything ground-breaking here however sometimes Google have been know to surprise.
