Google to take on Apple's AirPlay
| by Shunal Doke |
Google is constantly upping the ante against Apple when it comes to its services. According to GigaOm, Google is working on an alternative to Apple's AirPlay service. The first step towards this was taken in the recent launch of YouTube's AirPlay-like video beaming. This allows users to 'send' a clip from the Android YouTube app to a Google TV set or set-top-box.
The company is gunning for Apple
One of the biggest reasons for the sales of Apple TV could be Apple's AirPlay, which allows users to simply watch content beamed from their iPhones and iPads on their Apple TVs. Google certainly wants a bite of this, as this could see a spike in the sales of Google TV and Android tablets.
According to the post on Google’s blog, “We’ll scan your music collection and any song we match against the Google Play catalog will be automatically added to your online library without needing to upload it, saving you time.” The whole process is said to be free, including matching, syncing, and streaming. According to the blog, the service is slated to launch on November 13.
