LG has announced the launch of its Music Flow family of speakers and sound bars in the United States. These are among the first devices from LG that support Google Cast. It was only a few months ago when Google announced an audio-only version of “Cast,” which lets users stream music directly to connected speaker systems. Google Cast can be used to stream music to these LG speakers using any Android phone or tablet, iOS device, Mac or Windows PC as well as Chromebooks.
The LG Music Flow speakers also have support for Bluetooth and Spotify Connect, so if Google cast is not your cup of tea you can use those options as well to stream music from your device.
LG’s models include the company’s first battery-powered portable Wi-Fi streaming speaker, Model H4 20W, as well as three additional Wi-Fi streaming speakers, Model H3 30W, H5 40W and H7 70W. They cost $199, $179, $279 and $379 respectively.
Model LAS751M, LAS851M and LAS950M sound bars are also on offer for $499, $599 and $999 respectively. All models can be controlled with LG’s Music Flow mobile app for Android, iOS and Chromebook.
The LG Music Flow series is available from some of the major retailers in the country, including but not limited to Best Buy, Amazon and even the Google Play Store.
