Is Google Trying to Compete with Roon?

I happened upon this page from Google and the benefits they attribute to Chromecast are similar to what Roon offers. But without all the cool meta data that Roon includes or the DAP. I would not leave Roon for any reason, but for the average Joe or Judy, this might be appealing.

I think this is a positive for Roon; Chromecast is a range of streaming devices that Roon already supports.

Supports unless you have a Google Hub that is. There has also been an issue with Chromecast devices disappearing in the last month or so. I wouldn’t want to rely on it but it is convenient no doubt.
