Google will no longer manufacturer its Chromecast Audio digital media player.

"Our product portfolio continues to evolve, and now we have a variety of products for users to enjoy audio", a Google statement notes.

Chromecast Audio is a tiny disc dongle that can wirelessly fling music to dumb speakers.

Google on Friday confirmed to several publications that it has discontinued its Chromecast Audio streaming adapter.

Google said it will continue to offer assistance for Chromecast Audio devices.

Until now, Google didn't make any announcements regarding the fate of Chromecast Audio. As nice as the Google Home Max is, it's no replacement for a proper set of hi-fi speakers.

Ah, Chromecast Audio: the peculiar cousin to the vastly-popular Google Chromecast that never really managed to find a solid footing in the market. For now, you can still buy the Chromecast Audio at a pretty sweet deal. Though originally priced at $35, Google recently slashed the cost to only $15 each. It seems stocks of the gadget are rapidly diminishing: Like the Google Store, Staples is also listing the dongle as out of stock, although Newegg is still offering it through a third-party seller for US$29 at the time of writing.

While the Chromecast Audio provided limited functionality, it did give an option to audiophiles who own expensive speakers to turn their Rs 1 lakh speaker setup into a smart speaker on the cheap.

Chromecast Audio was a small and affordable way to stream audio from your phone to a pair of active speakers with a line-in or optical input.
