Why does Google Chromecast page still show VIZIO SPEAKERS as chromecast devices?

Google page https://www.google.com/chromecast/built-in/audio/ still shows VIZIO speakers as being chromecast speakers, but clicking on VIZIO results in 404 page not found.

Why hasn't Google updated that page?

I want the world to know that VIZIO has CRIPPLED the chromecast speaker capabilities in their VIZIO SMARTCAST app for the Crave 360 speakers and probably all of the Crave Series speakers if not ALL of the VIZIO chromecast speakers. If they still have some speakers that work with chromecast don't count on them keeping that capability.

VIZIO - Products that used to do what they said it would do, but NOT FOR LONG!

So what are the currently available chromecast capable speakers?

Is Google killing chromecast (AUDIO!) capable speakers too?

I'm old enough to not be used to how companies kill off technology that USED to work just fine. Now my 'chromecast' capable speakers are now just only bluetooth. Gut punched.

Hi bluekey,

 

Sorry for the late response. The supported Chromecast built-in speakers can still be found here. Also, I don't have info to share about Google removing Chromecast capable speakers. 

 

I understand why you feel that way. Again, I'll pass this along to the right team.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

 

That's the same exact link from my original post. ?????????

Vizio 404 page not found still there, most other brands are there really any other available speakers? 

I don't expect anything will get done.

I clicked on the SONY link on the Chromecast page, then searched that page for chromecast and it returned 0 results. So again, where are the available chromecast speakers?

5 WEEKS HAVE PASSED...

And Google page https://www.google.com/chromecast/built-in/audio/ still shows VIZIO speakers as being chromecast speakers, but clicking on VIZIO results in 404 page not found.

I suppose this proves that chromecast speakers are on their way out?

Does ANYONE know of a list of SUPPORTED chromecast speakers? 

Will those become obsolete like the other ones, when the company decides to criple the cast software?

IS SONOS THE ONLY ANSWER?

106 DAYS HAVE PASSED and still nothing has changed...

Google page https://www.google.com/chromecast/built-in/audio/ still shows VIZIO speakers as being chromecast speakers, in the #1 spot, but clicking on VIZIO results in 404 page not found.

Does this prove chromecast speakers are on their way out?

Does ANYONE know of a list of SUPPORTED Google chromecast speakers?

Vizio CRAVE SPEAKERS removed chromecast a very long time ago!!

Does this prove chromecast speakers are on their way out?

Does ANYONE know of a list of SUPPORTED Google chromecast speakers? 

Ok so no response here? Does anyone know of a Google community or forum where one can get answers? 

Thanks!

Hello bluekey,

 

I'm sorry for the late response. Please try to choose the TV option in the upper right corner then choose Vizio. You will see the same Vizio website, and from there choose soundbars. You will see the supported Vizio speakers.

 

Thanks,

Jennifer

Hmm, maybye you're using Bing or something as I do not get the same results that you describe. If I were looking for a TV or a SOUNDBAR then maybe that would be helpful, but my entire post is about the inability of Google to maintain their CHROMECAST SUPPORT SPEAKERS website.

 

For more fun, try clicking on a few more from that page and you'll see:

Clicking Vizio results in ‘404 Sorry that page can't be found’. < STILL AFTER SO MUCH TIME

Clicking Sony then searching for chromecast results in ‘Oops! sorry, no results found for your search’.

Clicking Phillips results in ‘This product is discontinued’.

Clicking Brookstone results in ‘Oops - We couldn't find that one’.

Clicking Onkyo takes you to the Onkyo website but no speakers are found.

Clicking Pioneer results in a blank page.

Clicking the Harman Kardon link returns ‘Undefined’.

Clicking the JBL link returns ‘Internal Error’.

 

Thanks Google!

Preparing for a ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

I just happened to come across this today and checked it again and...

Google page https://www.google.com/chromecast/built-in/audio/ still shows VIZIO speakers as being chromecast speakers, but clicking on VIZIO results in 404 page not found.

Why hasn't Google updated that page after almost a YEAR?
