Anthony Sethill, CEO of Frontier's parent company Toumaz Group, said: "Our agreement with Google will provide a major boost to our connected audio business in 2016 and beyond. In recent months, we have benefited from strong market growth and achieved a number of important design wins for our existing connected audio platform. With the addition of Cast for Audio, we expect to drive this growth further."
Cast for Audio – which uses the same technology as the Chromecast video streaming platform – allows users to stream music services directly from the cloud to Cast enabled speakers. Meanwhile, Frontier's technology solution allows consumer audio companies to build connected audio devices, such as Wi-Fi speakers and soundbars, quickly and easily and Cast for Audio is said to be a significant addition to its product portfolio.
