Audio Pro Jumps Into Bed With Google With New G10 Network Speaker
Audio Pro has jumped into bed with Google big time with a new G10 wireless speaker.
Apart from Google Assistant the speaker also has Google Cast and Apple AirPlay 2 onboard for easy streaming.
Jens Henriksen, the firm’s CCO, claims customers have voiced a “rising requirement” for AirPlay 2 and Google Cast.
“Whilst still creating a speaker with this compatibility, we thought it appropriate to go all the way with the additional integration of the Google Assistant feature, allowing users convenient voice-activated control over their audio, simply by speaking to it,” he says.
Distributed in Australia by Aqipa pricing and availability for the new speaker have not been announced, it is expected to sell for around $599.
Audio Pro says the G10 has a small footprint, making it easy to place around the home, and it’s a speaker that can also be mounted on a wall or contemporary ceiling rail that’s apparently become quite the trend in the home furnishings sector. Visually the speaker continues to differentiate itself from the Addon range of speakers with its cylindrical form.
Henriksen added “We are now trying to further adapt to the needs we are experiencing in many markets today and reach out to those customers which prefer Google’s platform over Amazon. Through its Google Cast function, the G10 has the ability to form a multi-room system with other Google Cast speakers. This invaluably allows voice-activated control over an entire group, or household, of Cast-compatible speakers, even if they do not directly possess a built-in Google Assistant function.”
The Audio Pro G10 will be available in two shades of grey.
