It&#39;s then sent on to every other Jongo in the house using Pure&#39;s own fancy Caskeid tech, which ensures every speaker is perfectly synchronised.</p> <p>At least, that&#39;s how it works in Phase 1, which is launching any day now. Phase 2 sees Pure making the Caskeid App Dev Kit available to other services, which should mean direct Wi-Fi support is available for many in the near future.</p> <p>Hooray for openness and flexibility! We&#39;ll report back as soon as we&#39;ve been able to go hands-on with the new features.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Pure Jongos to support Spotify" alt="Pure Jongos to support Spotify" src="/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSC01792.JPG" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/jongo/pure-jongos-now-play-nice-spotify-and-every-other-music-streaming-service/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/jongo/pure-jongos-now-play-nice-spotify-and-every-other-music-streaming-service/news#comments CES 2014 Jongo Pure Pure Connect Spotify Mon, 06 Jan 2014 03:58:13 +0000 Tom Parsons 1430701 at http://www.stuff.tv
