Casting is supported from Apple and Android smartphones and tablets as well as Mac and Windows laptops and Chromebooks. Google explains a little more about the new audio Google Chromecast device :
Chromecast Audio is a small device that plugs into your speaker for streaming music over Wi-Fi. Once set up, simply use your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or tablet, Mac or Windows laptop or Chromebook to cast your favourite tunes to the best speakers in the house.
Tap the Cast button from music apps to hear the music instantly on your speakers. Search, play, pause, queue songs and turn up the volume right from your phone – anywhere in the house.
