Google’s present range of smart speakers including Google Home, Google Home Mini, Google Home Max and Google Home Hub. “Chromecast Audio” is, however still available for purchase on Google’s website until stock runs out.

“We will continue to offer assistance for ‘Chromecast Audio’ devices, so users can continue to enjoy their music, podcasts and more,” the spokesperson added. The tech giant first announced the device in 2015.

In other news, Google recently launched the Chromecast 2018 model in India for Rs 3,499. The Chromecast 2018 model arrived with 1080p video streaming at 60fps, but it didn’t feature 4K video streaming. Google’s Chromecast Ultra is capable of streaming 4K videos at 60fps because it’s the company’s top-of-the-line streaming device right now. The all-new Chromecast 2018 works with Android, iOS, macOS, Windows and ChromeOS devices.
