Chromecast Audio Is Now the Super Cheap Way to Wirelessly Fill Multiple Rooms With Music.

, Google’s dongle that turns any speaker with an aux jack into a wireless speaker, has only been out in the world a few months, but it’s already getting some new powers that help justify the teensy dongle.

Google announced today that it is releasing a new update for the Chromecast Audio that will bring with it two major features: multiunit synchronization and support for Hi-Res audio.Google’s recently-launched Chromecast Audio adapter is getting a major feature update this week: Consumers will now be able to group multiple Chromecast audio adapters to stream their favorite music simultaneously in more than one room, similar to the multi-room support available for internet-connected loudspeakers like the ones made by Sonos. So if you’ve got one hooked up to the speakers in your living room and one connected to the speakers in your bedroom they can all play the same music—assuming they’re within range of each other. The $35 adapter can be plugged into any stereo system or stand-alone loudspeaker with line-in or optical audio connectivity, and allows consumers to stream music services like Spotify and other audio programming directly from the cloud.

Those who pay for higher-quality music streaming will also appreciate Chromecast Audio’s new high-resolution audio support, which can handle 96KHz/24bit lossless audio playback.
