Share:

Additional DTS Play-Fi products now support functionality for voice
commands through Alexa

DTS,
a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned
subsidiary of Xperi
Corporation
(NASDAQ:XPER) ("Xperi"), is pleased to announce
additional DTS
Play-Fi®
-enabled products are now Works with Alexa certified.
Speakers that now meet Amazon's high bar for a quality customer
experience include models from Aerix, Klipsch, McIntosh, Onkyo, Pioneer,
Phorus, and Soundcast. Additional DTS Play-Fi products, including select
sound bars and AVRs, will be upgraded with the functionality throughout
the year.

Customers can easily control audio playback on an Alexa compatible DTS
Play-Fi product from another room using an Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Echo
Show or other Alexa-enabled device. Simply link an Amazon account to a
compatible DTS Play-Fi product and Alexa will know the speaker by name.
Customers can use their voice to ask Alexa to play a song in a specific
room or a group of rooms that have been linked to adjust volume, skip
the track forward, mute, pause, stop the music and more.

"DTS Play-Fi is excited to have built an open wireless multi-room audio
platform that offers both integrated Alexa Voice Services (AVS) and
Works with Alexa certification, giving consumers the most
flexibility when it comes to voice control," said Dannie Lau, general
manager, DTS Play-Fi, at Xperi. "As more customers request and use voice
control with Alexa, we will continue to expand support for Alexa in the
DTS Play-Fi family of products to create a seamless experience for
users."

Once audio has started playing from an Alexa command, the DTS Play-Fi
app can be used to dynamically add more products into the streaming
session. Customers can link other DTS Play-Fi compatible speakers to
their Works with Alexa certified DTS Play-Fi device, and use Alexa
commands to the primary device to control playback across all connected
devices.

include:

  • Aerix Duet
