Intelligent Speaker, Cone, Available Soon
Instead of having to decide what music to listen to when you get home from a long day at work, Aether’s new Cone speaker wants to do that for you.
I wrote about the speaker when it was first announced and how it would be able to know what you wanted to listen to as you moved it around the house. As well as what music or podcasts to play at different times of the day.
Today, Aether announced that the wireless intelligent speaker would be available to purchase on June 23rd – for Rdio premium subscribers. Rdio is the first service to fully support the speaker with on-demand playback so it makes sense you’d need to be a subscriber to order.
The Cone will also be partnering with Nuance – presumably for the speech recognition – and Stitcher radio – presumably for podcast support.
