Google Cast Now On #BeoPlay Speakers @BangOlufsenSA

Hi Guys, 

B&O PLAY has announced a partnership with Google to bring Google CastTM to B&O PLAY’s in-market and future range of network speakers. All network speakers will have Google Cast built-in and will be available at the end of Q1 2016.

Google Cast lets you enjoy music streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn on your network speakers. You simply tap the Cast button on your favorite mobile music app to start playing music from your B&O PLAY network speakers.

“Having the ability to connect music seamlessly to speakers has always been integral to B&O PLAY’s success. With Google Cast, you can enjoy music directly from the cloud instead of playing music from your device, which gives premium audio quality and ensures that incoming calls or texts do not disrupt the music listening experience. We believe that freedom of choice in streaming technologies is increasingly important to consumers, so we are proud to bring Google Cast to our network speakers”, says Corporate VP of B&O PLAY Henrik Taudorf Lorensen.

The two in-market network speakers from B&O PLAY, the BeoPlay A6 and the second-generation BeoPlay A9, are already compatible with the Google Cast technology. Google Cast will be available via a software update at the end of Q1 2016. Besides Google Cast, B&O PLAY’s network speakers support Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth, making it possible to choose between various streaming technologies.

Since then, the brand has become an icon of performance and design excellence through its long-standing craftsmanship tradition and the strongest possible commitment to high-tech research and development.

Still at the forefront of domestic technology, Bang & Olufsen has extended its comprehensive experience with integrated audio and video solutions for the home to other areas such as the hospitality and automotive industries in recent years. Consequently, its current product range epitomizes seamless media experiences in the home as well as in the car and on the move.
