CES 2015: New partners announced for Qualcomm’s AllPlay wireless music streaming protocol, an AirPlay and Google Cast for Audio rival

By January 6th, 2015 AT 5:54 PM

The usage of wireless music streaming is rising, and we’re seeing some new standards to stream high-quality music. There’s good old Bluetooth but it simply doesn’t do justice if you’re an audiophile, or if you want to stream high-resolution audio to multiple speaker set-up at home. That’s the reason we have new standards like DLNA, Google Cast for Audio, Apple AirPlay, Spotify Connect, and Qualcomm AllPlay. Taking the opportunity of the ongoing CES 2015, Qualcomm has announced new hardware and software partners, as well as content providers for its Wi-Fi based wireless music streaming protocol, the Qualcomm AllPlay.

Music streaming services such as SoundCloud and Tidal have joined the likes of Rhapsody, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Napster, TuneIn Radio, and Aupeo in supporting Qualcomm’s AllPlay technology for wireless music streaming to compatible speakers, soundbars, and other devices. Speaking of compatible speakers, the House of Marley’s first wireless speaker, the One Foundation already supports Qualcomm AllPlay. Other brands such as TP-Link, Bayan Audio, Optoma Nuforce, Goodmans, Inkel/Sherwood, SVS, and TCL have promised to release AllPlay compatible networked speakers throughout 2015.

Even Google has announced their own wireless music streaming protocol, Google Cast for Audio, during the ongoing CES 2015 event in Las Vegas.
