Have you ever wondered what it would be like for a Windows Phone to stream music to other Windows Phones so each one plays the same audio file at the exact same time? Well, we have too. But that trail of thought will be answered with soundSYNK, an upcoming exclusive app for Windows Phone. Once again the platform will have an offering that will be restricted to Windows Phone and it sounds brilliant. So, what's soundSYNK all about?
The clue is in the name and with what we've already explained above. It's an app that has come out of Microsoft's Imagine Cup and is the product of 4 "young music crazed entrepreneurs." The idea is to utilise multiple devices to play music and create a surround sound effect. Say you have multiple devices in each room, in different locations within those rooms, and you fire up soundSYNK. The app would then play the same song in each room, on each device at the same time.
Using Bluetooth, soundSYNK solves the issue when playback can be a second out on a single device, which then sounds nothing short of awful. Using other phones (and supported devices) as speakers, consumers can create music systems with minimal effort. Of course, we're not suggesting that multiple 8X Windows Phones pumping out some tunes will sound as good as a home theatre system, but it's cool nonetheless.
Check out the following video which explains soundSYNK perfectly. And what better way to advertise a product than with some Skrillex?
Speaking of other supported hardware, Windows 8 will sport an app too. This will allow those who own Windows tablets and machines to also churn out the notes in synchronicity. The concept itself opens up a number of situations where such functionality would prove useful. So when can consumers look to be able to check out soundSYNK? Later this year. Fear not as we'll be sure to update you all with the progress.
