Casting vs Bluetooth audio

What is the difference between Casting and Bluetooth audio?

With Chromecast Audio, the music is streamed from the cloud to your speakers via Wi-Fi providing many benefits compared to Bluetooth:

• Your phone is not tied to what is playing on the speaker. You are free to continue using it to play a game, take a call and even move around the house without interrupting what’s playing on the speakers.

• Cast to Chromecast Audio won’t strain the battery on your phone, tablet or laptop.

• You can leave the room and still control playback from anywhere in the house, no need to limit yourself to the Bluetooth range.
Using Wi-Fi enables higher audio quality playback.
