Google today launched Google Cast for audio, which will let users send music directly to internet-connected speakers, just like it already does with video and images on TVs.

In fact, using Cast for audio will be just like using Chromecast today when the first compatible speakers start to arrive “in the spring”, Google said. Tapping a button on your favorite music or radio app will launch the service on your speaker, and also just like Chromecast, this functionality will be available across the Web, Android and iOS platforms.

Google said Denon, Sony and LG would be among the first device makers to build products that support the new feature, with more to follow later in the year.
