Microchip extends Spotify Connect support in new JukeBlox platform release
A new release of Spotify Connect in the standard Microchip JukeBlox Platform extends support to more than 8 million audio products based on Microchip’s network audio processors and includes a number of key improvements on the initial release. The key benefit of Spotify Connect is that once a track has been selected, the audio stream is delivered directly from Spotify’s servers to the wireless speaker using the local network. This frees the mobile device for use during music playback which greatly reduces battery depletion and allows the mobile device to move anywhere in the network without interrupting music playback.
Spotify Connect is an award-winning digital music service that provides on-demand access to more than 20 million tracks. Spotify makes it easier than ever to discover, manage and share music. Spotify Premium users can control and play their music through their phone, tablet and audio devices simply and effortlessly, at the touch of a button.
Spotify Connect is available via a free download. Spotify offers a 30-day free trial period and thereafter there is a $9.99 monthly fee for Premium Service.
