Qualcomm's AllPlay platform gains Spotify support, Monster and Fon integration
Qualcomm has signed new hardware and software partners for its AllPlay media streaming platform as the vendor looks to realize its vision of universal media streaming. Qualcomm announced that AllPlay is now certified with Spotify Connect, which means that you can now stream Spotify over Wi-Fi using an AllPlay-compatible device to several speakers in the home. AllPlay already supports other streaming services such as iHeartRadio, Napster, and Rhapsody.
Qualcomm also mentioned that it is partnering with Monster in integrating AllPlay support into the vendor's SoundStage wireless speakers, as well as offering support for Fon's Gramofon streaming box, which is set to go on sale later this year. In addition, Qualcomm is making the AllPlay Click SDK publicly available, which should bring additional services to the platform.
AllPlay is built atop Qualcomm's AllJoyn open source software framework, through which the hardware vendor is aiming to provide a common platform for connecting IoT devices.
