Frontier Smart Technologies, a leading supplier of digital audio solutions, announces that its smart audio solution has been chosen by fast-growing US audio brand, BRAVEN, to power new voice-enabled smart speakers with Google Assistant.
BRAVEN devices are designed for the outdoor adventurer and modern audiophile. One of the company’s first voice-enabled speakers is the Villa Connect, a 15W mono speaker with Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in and Bluetooth.
Frontier’s SmartSDK (voice-enabled streaming software solution) and Minuet hardware provide a complete multi-ecosystem platform for brands and manufacturers to develop voice-enabled audio devices which support the latest technologies, including Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in, quickly and cost-effectively.
