Chromecast Audio now supports hi-res, multi-room streaming

Chromecast Audio is now a solution for your entire home. Today, Google is announcing it can support multiple speakers for single-track playback.

If you’ve got a bunch of good speakers throughout your home, hooking up a Chromecast Audio to each one means you can play a single song throughout your entire home. They don’t even have to be the same brand of speaker; so long as they have a 3.5mm audio input, they can accept a Chromecast Audio.

Google also says high resolution audio files are now supported. If you’re curious, high resolution means “96KHz / 24bit audio,” which Google says is better than CD quality.

The new features will arrive via a software update today.
