Chromecast is an affordable, compelling media streamer that lets you watch video from your mobile devices on your television. But it only works with an HDMI connection, and that leaves anything without a big screen out of the game. Now Google has released the Chromecast Audio, a new variant designed solely to turn your speakers wireless for music streaming. It works just like the Chromecast, and has the same low $35 price tag, but it lacks video output and instead connects via a 3.5mm audio jack (with support for stereo RCA and optical audio). And, just like the original Chromecast, it does exactly what it claims to do, extremely well, and at a very reasonable price.
Some third party radio aggregators, such as TuneIn [https://tunein.com/get-tunein/] will scroll artist/track title/album art. But BE CAREFUL! --- many of these purveyors will try to trick you into subscribing, which is only needed if you want to avoid their ads or want their premium content. Almost all offer free versions.
