Google Enables StreamUnlimited as Google CastTM Partner

Support for Manufacturers to incorporate Google Cast into their Audio Products

Vienna, Austria - January 6, 2016 - StreamUnlimited, a provider of software solutions and modules for connected audio products, announces Google has enabled StreamUnlimited as a Google CastTM partner. Manufacturers integrating StreamUnlimited's StreamSDK technology have the ability to add Google Cast to their software through the partnership. Furthermore, StreamUnlimited can enrich manufacturer's own hardware and software platforms with Google Cast.


Google's enablement of StreamUnlimited technology will allow audio manufacturers to bring Google Cast streaming partners and platforms to market more efficiently. Google Cast works across platforms with support for devices based on Android, Apple's iOS, Microsoft and on the web with Chrome, and provides solutions with many popular music applications and online radio stations, such as Pandora, iHeart Radio, TuneIn and more. Google Cast is a technology that lets you cast your favorite entertainment from your phone, tablet or laptop right to your TV or speakers. In 2015, Google Cast added Rhapsody, Napster, BBC Radio, Spotify and 7Digital to their list of high resolutions audio streaming partners and they plan to continue expanding this year.

"Over the last year, we have worked closely and productively with Google to complete this significant project," said Frits Wittgrefe, chief executive officer for StreamUnlimited. "Since the project has completed, we have already added several major design-in's. We are excited to finally announce the partnership and have the ability to serve more brands with exceptional audio products."

With more than 15 years of experience in streaming audio technology, StreamUnlimited supports many music streaming services and in adding Google Cast into their StreamSDK capabilities, audio product manufacturers can reduce product and software development times. Google Cast is available as an add-on to StreamUnlimited's StreamSDK software, a silicon independent technology that allows brands to mix Google Cast with other streaming audio functionality. Additionally, StreamUnlimited offers ready-to-use hardware modules and related applications for the Google Cast technology.
