AmpMe Allows Users to Sync Audio Across Multiple Devices, Aims to Take on Sonos
Having a multi-speaker audio setup can be amazing for all sorts of occasions and events, but they can get really expensive. At CES, a new app called AmpMe aims to solve this problem by allowing users to sync audio playback across multiple devices.
Users will be able to sync audio playback across multiple phones and tablets. Most of today’s devices can act as a Wi-Fi hotspot and the company has used this trick to allow the audio to be in sync across all the connected devices.
You will be able to sync music from YouTube, SoundCloud, or your own local music library. The team behind the app suggests that users throw a “bring-your-own-Bluetooth-speaker” party. AmpMe claims that they’ve been able to get hundreds of devices synced up at once.
The Montreal-based app has raised $10 million after sparking the interest of an investor on the TV show Dragon’s Den. The company is looking to add support from other streaming services like Spotify in the near future.
AmpMe is available as a free download from the App Store and requires any device running iOS 9.0 or later. The app is also available as a free download from the Google Play Store for Android users.
