Berlin The new function is called Auracast, is to be enshrined in the specifications for Bluetooth LE Audio and will be published in the coming months. Auracast means: Share and listen When the first smartphones, notebooks, televisions or systems with Auracast will be on the market, it is still difficult to estimate. You could then share your sound wirelessly with Auracast-enabled headphones, speakers, or hearing aids in the area. In any case, Bluetooh SIG sees potential for Auracast not only in the private environment, but also in public space. The technology can make audible on headphones, for example, what was previously mute: that is, the sound of televisions and displays at train stations, squares, airports, sports halls, restaurants or waiting rooms. In addition, audio transmissions or announcements that previously only ran via loudspeaker systems could also be received directly with Auracast-enabled Bluetooth headphones or hearing aids. For example, at conferences or even in the cinema.
