What is SpeakerBlast?
SpeakerBlast is a fun & superior wireless audio technology!
It can be used to...
- Turn a crowd & their devices into a stereo system
- Fill a home with audio using multiple Internet devices
- Play audio in sync on an unlimited amount of devices across infinite distance
- Lots more!
What devices are supported?
- iPhone & iPad (iOS 6 or higher) in Safari.
- Laptops in Google Chrome.
- Desktops in Google Chrome.
- Android (4.1 & higher) in Chrome for Android.
Since we are in beta you may experience out of sync issues in Chrome vs other devices. Internet Explorer and Windows Phones could be a reality within the next year. Microsoft just needs to implement the latest cutting edge technologies into Internet Explorer. Support for Firefox is pending!
Does SpeakerBlast work on any Internet connection?
SpeakerBlast works on fast non-crowded Internet connections with a speed of 5Mbps or higher. If your Wifi or 4G (LTE) Internet connection IS NOT slow or bogged down then SpeakerBlast will work reliably. 3G Internet service here in the US overall isn't fast enough to provide a reliable and solid user experience(works on 3G, but not reliably)!
How many devices does SpeakerBlast support?
SpeakerBlast can theoretically support an unlimited amount of devices and to date our biggest SpeakerBlast was 100 devices blasting Beethoven's 5th Symphony at The DC Tech Meetup.
Does SpeakerBlast work outside the U.S.?
All of our testing was done in the US, but there are dozens of countries that offer similar Wifi & 4G (LTE) Internet connections and speeds comparable to the US. We are interested in hearing your experiences good or bad, so we can tweak the service accordingly.
Do all devices need to be connected to the same network?
No, devices can be connected to different networks. For example, Device "A," can be connected to a 4G LTE network while device, "B," can be connected to a home Wifi network. All devices though need to be connected to an Internet connection with a download speed of at least 5Mbps or higher (modern 4G LTE & Wifi connections should suffice depending on your location).
Do you have an iPhone or Android app to download?
SpeakerBlast is a web app that requires no download. We feel not having to download an app, rather just going to a website to join in on the fun is best!
Will you support playlists?
SpeakerBlast at this time only plays one audio track, but we currently are developing the ability to play multiple tracks.
Any tips for a successful SpeakerBlast?
Upon setting up a SpeakerBlast you will see "Recommended Tracks" that we have selected for you to choose. These tracks are well known US public domain songs and more importantly, the size of each track is small (under 2 megabytes). The smaller the audio file the better! Though if you have a Google Fiber type of connection (1 Gigabyte download) you could SpeakerBlast your family's home high definition movies! Also, on lower end hand held devices blasting some rocking tune that is a low audio quality might not sound the greatest.
