CES 2015, Monday's best: Nvidia's chips for cars, Google Chromecast for speakers

Google is investing in new tools that provide online songs, movies and television shows as users increasingly access various screens for consuming media, a competitive area that has also attracted rivals including Apple and Amazon.

Chromecast, unveiled in 2013, has emerged as the No. 2 media-streaming device, with 20 percent of sales to U.S. homes with broadband access during the first three quarters of 2014, according to Parks Associates.

The Mountain View company is pushing out Google Cast later this year with speakers from partners such as Sony and LG Electronics. The service will provide digital audio through online providers including Google Play Music, Pandora Media and iHeartMedia.
