While we’re seeing a rise in Bluetooth speakers, there are many audiophiles out there who might prefer using “regular” wired speakers with the belief that wired audio is better than wireless audio as far as quality is concerned. Google’s Chromecast Audio was a way for users to own a wired speaker system but also give users an option to stream wirelessly.

Unfortunately for those who are hoping to get their hands on the Chromecast Audio, you might want to hurry because Google seems to have confirmed that the device has been continued. This is according to a post on Reddit (via 9to5Google) in which the user bought a Chromecast Audio over Christmas last year only to have the order cancelled, and being told that this was due to the fact that the device had been discontinued.

Google has since confirmed this in a statement where they say, “Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio. We have therefore stopped manufacturing our Chromecast Audio products. We will continue to offer assistance for Chromecast Audio devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more.”

It has been pointed out that while the device might have been discontinued, it appears that there is still quite a lot of stock left. This means that if you do enjoy the features of Chromecast Audio and want to get a couple of units before it is no longer available, you might want to hurry.
