LG on Tuesday announced and released new Music Flow Wi-Fi speakers that are compatible with Google Cast. Google’s technology allows you to easily stream from an Android, iOS, Mac, Windows or Chrome OS device right to the speakers using LG’s Music Flow application.
There are seven different speakers in the family, including four standard speakers and three sound bars. That includes the H3 30-watt speaker, which is priced at $179, the portable H4 20 watt speaker priced at $199, the H5 40 watt speaker priced at $279 and the H7 70 watt speaker priced at $379. The sound bars include the LAS751M for $499, the LAS851M for $599 and the LAS950M for $999. A consumer can sync the sound bars to the standard speakers for a cinema experience, LG explained, and sync can occur once a user walks within just one foot of a speaker.
Supported services include Google Play Music, Pandora, Songza, TuneIn, iHeartRadio and Rdio, the company explained, and audio quality is supposed to be better than what a user might otherwise receive by streaming to a Bluetooth speaker—though Bluetooth is a supported option—since music is streamed directly over Wi-Fi from the cloud instead of from your device.
All of the speakers should be available on Tuesday from Amazon, HH Gregg, Best Buy and the Google Play Store, save for the H4 20 watt portable speaker, which will launch next month.
