BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - Dec 8, 2016) - Raumfeld announces today the release of its Google Cast for audio implementation. The free update is compatible with all current Raumfeld speakers, giving customers access to more than 100+ new music apps including Google Play Music, Spotify, Deezer, TIDAL, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, SoundCloud, Qobuz and Juke.*

"Music is a constant companion for many people and we are always looking for innovative ways to enhance our customers' listening experience," said Pablo La Rosa, General Manager Music Streaming at Raumfeld. "Adding Google Cast to our products takes immersion to the next level and provides new opportunities for music lovers to discover new songs, find old favorites, create their own playlists or try out the playlists others have shared."

Simply more selection
More than 100+ music apps currently support Google Cast for audio and the list continues to grow. Big names like Google Play Music, Spotify, Deezer, TuneIn, Qobuz, SoundCloud, Juke and TIDAL already support the streaming technology. From today onwards, a free firmware update will allow all Raumfeld multiroom WiFi speakers to play audio from Google Cast-enabled apps.

Tap, select, enjoy
It couldn't be easier: Raumfeld users simply open their favorite Google Cast-enabled app and tap on the Cast icon. From there it's possible to select one or more Raumfeld speakers for playback. Once playback starts, it can be controlled from the same app.

To manage the speakers or organize them into groups, use the Google Home App provided by Google. Note that a single device can be made part of different speaker groupings. It's even possible to combine Raumfeld speakers with other cast-enabled speakers.

At home and on the road -- with the same apps
For many people, music is a constant companion. Streaming services make it possible to listen to the perfect soundtracks for each location and mood. They also provide a way for music lovers to discover new songs and find old favorites, create their own playlists or try out the playlists other users have made public. All personal settings, titles, playlists and music downloads are always available -- on the go or at home. With Google Cast for audio, an album enjoyed on headphones during a commute can be effortlessly transferred to a pair of hi-fi speakers at home.
