Great sound is fundamental to connected experiences, and Qualcomm Technologies is at the forefront driving innovation for premium wireless audio – applying our complete, end-to-end system approach across mobile devices, earbuds, headphones, and speakers. One of the latest innovations in the Bluetooth audio industry is LE Audio, and the new LE Audio standard will enable a whole new era of listening experiences – including audio sharing with broadcast audio capability.
Qualcomm FastConnect 6900 system, our premium connectivity system, and our flagship Bluetooth earbud platforms – Qualcomm QCC5151 and Qualcomm QCC305x – are among the first solutions to have been qualified by the Bluetooth SIG for audio sharing with LE Audio, enabling end-to-end broadcast audio experiences.
Broadcast audio allows smartphone users to wirelessly connect their audio stream with the earbuds of friends and family, so everyone can enjoy a shared listening experience. Users can connect an unlimited number of earbuds to their phone so they can share a song with friends, watch a movie together without a wired splitter, or even host their own silent disco.
Innovation applied across Bluetooth standards
Our Bluetooth audio innovations are designed for real-world use cases. Enhanced Bluetooth robustness and compatibility with traditional Bluetooth technologies are vital to ensure that new-era Bluetooth devices work in real-world use cases as the global ecosystem evolves. With our end-to-end optimized tech, Qualcomm Technologies is bringing the best LE Audio features together with the best traditional Bluetooth features so that manufacturers can design and deploy their audio products with confidence.
Up next in the new era of Bluetooth audio
The new LE Audio standard invites exciting innovation, enhancing and creating entirely new listening experiences. From the inventors who transformed the way the world connects, computes, and communicates, we are among the first to include these exciting new features into our solutions. And because we take an end-to-end, systems view when it comes to enabling new experiences, our tech innovation may help drive adoption – and create new ecosystems – throughout the wireless industry.
Expect to see more news soon about how we’re building on the exciting Bluetooth LE Audio standards to deliver what’s next in Bluetooth audio.
