What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth technology has transformed the way we interact with our devices from its inception by telecom company Ericsson in 1994. Using short-length UHF radio waves in the ISM band from 2.4 to 2.485 GHZ a signal is transmitted from one device to another.
The technology has undergone many changes since its inception in the 90’s as many waves of innovation has pushed Bluetooth to revamp the product and move with the times.
This has led to their latest iteration…Bluetooth 5.0!
Unlike the original Bluetooth technology which could only be connected to one device at a time, Bluetooth 5.0 covers multiple connections simultaneously.
So, now how will this enhancement of the Bluetooth get your next party or family session lit? This is how…
- Increased Interaction
- More Sound
- More Innovation
Bluetooth 5.0 Will Increase Interaction
Have you ever hosted or been to a party and only a single DJ selected the “hits” of the night? Or, at a family gathering where your father was the only one allowed to play his old records everyone hated?
We have all been there, believe me!
With Bluetooth 5.0 however, you will never have to sit through those atrocities anymore. Now you can connect multiple devices to a single speaker and play music that everyone likes.
Imagine hosting a party and your friends having the ability to add their selections to a shared playlist for everyone to feel involved. Now, this is what entertainment of the future will be like.
Bluetooth 5.0 Will Allow More Sound
Bluetooth 5.0 boasts a bit more connectivity than its predecessor Bluetooth 4.2.
This speaks a lot about the Internet of Things (IoT) and the future of smart homes, as pointed out by Gear Patrol.
With Bluetooth 5.0, once the receiving device is within 260 feet of the emitting device with no physical obstructions such as a wall, media can be played on multiple devices in multiple rooms.
This means you can have the music playing by the pool being played in your kitchen and living room also, creating an immersive and entertaining experience for all your guests or family.
Products like the Sonos Multi-room Speaker will make your Bluetooth 5.0 streaming even more interactive and exciting.
Bluetooth 5.0 Will Push Innovation
Bluetooth 5.0 will push product innovators to create products that allow more immersion and better connectivity over longer ranges.
Technology product developers will be forced to push the boundaries which means more exciting and futuristic products providing unique entertainment and social encounters.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the future, and as we can see around us, everyday products are becoming artificially intelligent and smart.
Bluetooth 5.0 is just a part of the technological revolution taking over our lives.
Bluetooth 5.0 Summary
Bluetooth 5.0 is a great piece of technology that will transform the way we view entertainment in our homes. Not only will we be able to create better experiences for our friends and family, but also help drive the innovation needed to develop similar technology going forward.
Bluetooth 5.0 will be going mainstream in 2018 as more devices adapt, so stay tuned.
