V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless review: Improved in every way except price

Monday, July 17th, 2017

Since my introduction to the brand a couple of years ago, V-Moda has quickly become one of my favorite audio companies. Solid sound and performance, paired with impeccable build quality and distinctive styling make the company's products easy to like and recommend. I thoroughly enjoyed the Crossfade wireless headphones when I reviewed them a year ago, and though I had a few small issues with the headphones, I was impressed overall.

Google announced at I/O that Home was going to learn a few new tricks, including good old-fashioned Bluetooth streaming. Even though Bluetooth is as old as the hills in tech years, it still took some time to get this feature ready. It's rolling out now, and you might already have it on your Google Home.

Google Home has always supported streaming audio, but that was as a Chromecast target. Your app needs to have Chromecast support baked in.

If you happen to still own a Google Glass unit, yesterday's mysterious update of the MyGlass companion app might have had you thinking about dusting off the headset to see if it could still hold a charge... If you could ever really say Glass held a charge. In possibly the biggest tease (or troll) for Glass owners, today brings an even bigger surprise: New firmware. Yes, if you leave Glass connected to the Internet for a little while, it should download and install the brand new XE23 update.

Android O feature spotlight: Developer Preview 2 adds a Bluetooth AVRCP version selector

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Bluetooth seems to be getting some improvements in Android O. When the first Developer Preview dropped, we saw that the OS will let you choose which Bluetooth codec, including aptX and aptX HD, to use when streaming audio wirelessly. In a similar vein, Developer Preview 2 now has an option for you to choose which AVRCP version to use, instead of just getting stuck with the default v1.4.

Bluetooth streaming added to Google Home, now you can play anything

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Google’s Rishi Chandra took to the stage during Google's I/O keynote to talk about incoming features for Google Home. After announcing that some great free music services will be coming to the smart speaker — including Spotify, Deezer and SoundCloud — he also dropped the news that support for streaming over Bluetooth was incoming.

This will apply to all existing Google Home devices and will allow you to play anything you want from any device that supports Bluetooth. This takes us from the fairly limited music offering that came before to being able to play almost anything through the device.
