In 2014, many of you - millions, in fact - helped make Chromecast one of the most popular streaming media devices globally. It's been exciting to bring Chromecast from one country to now 27 countries, with more to come in 2015. Chromecast usage per device has increased by 60% since launch due to the growing roster of new apps and features.

And today, we're announcing Google Cast for audio, which embeds the same technology behind Chromecast into speakers, sound bars, and A/V receivers. Just like Chromecast, simply tap the cast button in your favorite music or radio app on Android, iOS, or the web, and select a Google Cast Ready speaker to get the party started.

So, at this point I'm the only one who just uses DLNA to play music and video stored on his workstation from my sound system/TV, right?

Hopefully they will push the Opus-codec, which truly is the best streaming codec around. You don't want to stream mp3 in 2015 and onward!
