B&O PLAY teams up with Google to introduce Google Cast™ to network speakers

Press Release   •   Jan 07, 2016 08:43 GMT

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

“Connecting your music seamlessly to your speaker has always been key to B&O PLAY. 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 are not disrupting the music. 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.

In-market B&O PLAY speakers are Google Cast-ready

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, so Google Cast will be available through a software update by the end of Q1 2016.

Besides Google Cast, B&O PLAY’s network speakers also support Apple AirPlay and Bluetooth making it possible to choose between a variety of streaming technologies.
