AwoX, the smart home company, has announced that it is partnering with streaming music provider, Spotify, to bring Spotify Connect to its WiFi-enabled, musical LED bulbs and newly acquired Cabasse streaming audio products.
Alain Molinié, founder and CEO of AwoX, says, “By partnering with the world’s most popular streaming service, we want to offer to every owner of AwoX WiFi speaker bulb and Cabasse audio streaming products, the largest musical offering.”
This new integration enables users to listen to their favorite tunes wherever they use AwoX musical WiFi bulbs and Cabasse streaming audio products. Spotify Connect, the wireless media streaming platform, is integrated into the StriimLIGHT WiFiTM light bulb and Cabasse products, allowing Spotify Connect subscribers to listen to their music anywhere in the home and use their phones at the same time, without interruption. Users can also access Spotify Connect using the free AwoX Stream CONTROL app on their iOS (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/stream-control/id926886421?mt=8) and Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.awox.stream.control&hl=fr_FR) smartphone and tablet devices.
The AwoX Stream CONTROL app will also detect all Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) products within the network. The Digital Living Network Alliance is a nonprofit collaborative standards organization that is responsible for defining interoperability guidelines to enable sharing of digital media between multimedia devices. Currently over 20,000 models have been DLNA Certified, for a total of over 3 billion devices sold.
Spotify Connect is available to Spotify Premium subscribers.
