With gorgeous looks and amazing sound, Libratone brings you the ultimate in portable speakers for Android and Windows devices

Libratone has announced a software update that will increase the performance and versatility of the Libratone Zipp, Live and Lounge wireless speakers across multiple device platforms, as well as enhancing the product lineup’s existing capabilities for the Apple iOS.

Users of Android and Windows mobile can now see, hear and feel the attractive design and audiophile-grade sounds of the Libratone range of wireless speakers, which have been available since 2011 for consumers with iPhones and iPads. These software updates also extends to PlayDirect technology, originally developed for the Libratone Zipp, Libratone Live and Lounge, enabling the speakers to work without the need for a Wi-Fi network.

“This update underscores our commitment to continually innovate our products, deliver uncompromising quality and expand our customers’ options for making the most of their music,” says Tommy Andersen, CEO of Libratone. “The very essence of Libratone is freedom, and through this update many more people will be able to set their music free.”

Research from IDC indicates that the market for wireless audio equipment is likely to top $4.5 billion by 2015. Whilst the rapid adoption of smartphones and tablets is feeding this increased demand for portable, high-quality, wireless speakers.

Libratone’s wireless speakers were first designed to work only with Apple’s iPhone and iPad but now also support DLNA technology – a widely supported industry standard. This extends compatibility to Android and Windows devices, enabling them to stream music to Libratone’s speakers through any in-home Wi-Fi network. Part of the new update is also a Libratone Android app, which will be available for download in February 2013.

PlayDirect works in conjunction with both AirPlay and DLNA technology, creating a direct Wi-Fi connection between the Libratone wireless speaker and any compatible device. Whether connected through Airplay, DLNA or using PlayDirect,

The update is applicable to the current family of Libratone wireless speakers and includes improved sound performance on all three units:
