Qualcomm’s media streaming service AllPlay has not been in the limelight for quiet some time and has failed to gain any traction. The chip maker is now announcing new software and hardware partners for its media streaming service.
Bayan Audio, Goodmans, part of the Harvard International Group of Companies, UK, House of Marley, Inkel/Sherwood, Optoma Nuforce, SVS, TCL Communications and TP-LINK will make music speakers and other audio equipment to use the AllPlay streaming service. SoundCloud and Tidal are going to offer support for AllPlay later this year along with KT Music and QQ Music.
“Throughout the past year we’ve launched and expanded upon the AllPlay platform through integration with our hardware and content partners, in addition to the release of the first AllPlay Click software development kit, further showcasing the breadth of what this platform can accomplish in the ecosystem. As we continue to collaborate with developers and new companies, we remain committed to providing the choice, flexibility and high quality audio that define the AllPlay brand.”
said Sy Choudhury, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Connected Experiences.
Qualcomm had launched AllPlay in 2013 and the service is built upon AllJoyn software framework, a collaborative open source project of the AllSeen Alliance.
