Speakers with Chromecast built-in

Chromecast built-in speakers come with Chromecast built-in, so you can stream your favourite music, radio or podcasts from your mobile device to your speakers.

Easily cast music, without the hassle of pairing

Tap the Cast button from your favourite music apps to start casting to your speakers. Adjust the volume or change the song, right from your phone.

Unlike Bluetooth setup, Chromecast built-in works over Wi-Fi so that you can connect more than one device to your speakers at a time and control what’s playing from anywhere in the house.

Streaming music with Wi-Fi vs Bluetooth

Feature Wi-Fi Bluetooth

Highest sound quality

With Wi-Fi, music streams from the cloud so the music sounds exactly the way the artist intended. With Bluetooth, audio is re-compressed, which can compromise sound quality.

Answer a call without interrupting what's casting

With Wi-Fi streaming, your music keeps playing without disruption, even if you get a phone call or a text. With Bluetooth, phone calls and notifications are heard over the speakers.

Control music from anywhere in the house

Chromecast built-in streams music over Wi-Fi, which means that you can control the music from anywhere within your Wi-Fi network. With Bluetooth, your phone needs to be near the speaker or the music will stop playing.

Play same music across multiple speakers

Chromecast built-in lets you group select speakers together to play the same song everywhere.

Doesn’t drain phone battery

Casting music over Wi-Fi doesn’t drain your battery, while pairing from Bluetooth does.

Easily share music from multiple devices

With Wi-Fi every mobile device on the network can connect and control your speakers. With Bluetooth, pairing devices can be tedious and requires disconnecting one device before another can connect.

Compatible with Android, iOS and laptops

Both options work with iOS, Android and laptops.

Upgrade your existing speakers

Chromecast Audio is a small device that plugs into your speaker for streaming music through Wi-Fi. Use your iPhone®, iPad®, Android phone and tablet, Mac® and Windows® laptop or Chromebook to cast your favourite tunes to the best speakers in the house.
