SoundCloud iOS app updated with Chromecast support

While still an underdog in the streaming music market, SoundCloud is still pushing ahead with new updates and features. Or, in the case of their iOS app, an update with an old feature that's been on Android for some time now.

Google Home app’s Listen tab curates your music for you

Google Home app’s Listen tab curates your music for you

The Google Home app, formerly known as Google Cast, is the user’s only visible gateway to Google’s screen-less devices, like the Chromecast, Cast-enabled speakers, and, of course, the Google Home. As a gateway, however, it’s pretty basic and doesn’t exactly make some action convenient. Like looking for music to cast to devices, for example, which you’d have to do in each and every app on your own. Not anymore. Google has just inserted a new Listen tab to the app to make concocting the perfect playlist a breeze.

Grace Digital’s Mondo+ radio has Chromecast built-in

Grace Digital already offers products that play nice with Chromecasts, but perhaps not at this level: its new radio, called the Mondo+, has a Chromecast built-in. Those of you who are familiar with the original Mondo will feel right at home here, as the Mondo+ doesn't offer too many aesthetic differences. Functionality is similar as well, but with a built-in Chromecast, your streaming options expand quite significantly.

VIZIO Crave 360, Crave Pro speakers get some Spotify love

VIZIO Crave 360, Crave Pro speakers get some Spotify love

VIZIO is a brand better known for its TVs, both traditional and smart, but of late it has been making huge strides to leave a mark in the connect speaker market segment. Last September, it unveiled its Crave 360 and Crave Pro Cast-enabled multi-room speakers, encroaching on Sonos’ territory. Now VIZIO, which is being acquired by Chinese tech giant LeEco, is stepping up its challenge by striking a partnership with Spotify. Starting today, actually starting last Christmas, owners of Crave 360 and Crave Pro speakers will be able to cast their Spotify tunes to the speakers just as easily as any Chromecast-enabled device.

Samsung Smart TVs to get Chromecast-like powers

Samsung Smart TVs to get Chromecast-like powers

TVs have changed a great deal in just the last few years or so. And we're not just referring to curved screens or quantum dot buzzwords. TVs, especially the smart ones, have become capable of sourcing content from a wide variety of sources, including from our smartphones. Or in this case, through our smartphones. That seems to be the path Samsung Smart TVs are traveling. Based on screenshots of its companion Smart View app, Samsung might be including a feature similar to Google Chromecast in its next Smart TVs.

Google Home, Assistant now work with some Sony speakers, TVs

Google Home might be a smart speaker but, by itself, it isn’t exactly going to rock your house in terms of audio quality or even volume. And don’t even think about playing video directly on it. For those use cases, you’ll need dedicated audio and video equipment to make the best out of the experience. And what better way to do that than with equipment powered by Google’s technology as well. Sony has just announced that, thanks to a firmware upgrade, a number of its “Chromecast built-in” speakers and 4K HDR Android TVs now integrate with Google Home and, consequently, Google Assistant.

Google Cast branding dropped in favor of Chromecast built-in

The Google Cast brand hasn't been around that long, but Google is already phasing it out. The branding, which marked speakers and other things compatible with Google's casting technology, will disappear and be replaced with the 'Chromecast built-in' designation. The company's Google Cast website already mentions this change, though it seems to be happening slowly rather than in one big sweep.

Google Home device detailed : speakers, Chromecast, the anti-Echo

Google has set about taking over our abodes this morning with a full reveal of the device called Google Home. This is the device we saw briefly earlier this year around Google I/O 2016, now coming from Google in a release-level manner.
