According to the Google employee, the product is now in a discontinued state and no longer in production.
Perhaps part of it was simply consumer confusion or just an example of Google doing what Google does often: making something as a stop gap with zero thought given to that thing's eventual demise. As nice as the Google Home Max is, it's no replacement for a proper set of hi-fi speakers.
We'll start with the bad: citing weaker sales figures than its video-capable counterpart, Google is discontinuing its Chromecast Audio streamer.
I suppose the writing was on the wall, wasn't it? .
In the US Google Store the Chromecast Audio is reduced to just $15 and, in many other parts of the world like the United Kingdom, it labeled as out of stock. The device behaved much in the same way as a Chromecast, allowing you to cast audio from supported apps over the network to the device, which could then be played through the speakers.
Google is killing Chromecast Audio, a smart accessory for non-smart speakers that it had launched in 2015.
Yes, I just bought another one too.
The good news is that the Alphabet Inc. -owned company will continue to offer support for the Chromecast Audio hardware, as per the statement, which means that owners who are still using the device regularly aren't going to be left high-and-dry.
While I'm sad to see this little guy get the axe, I do suppose the rise of the smart speaker was inevitable, so I don't really blame Google for flipping the switch. Sure, they've sold other products in the past, but the company has sold tens of millions of Chromecast units and has integrated the feature into many of its services.
