Let me apologise in advance, because there’s not much news here and no detail to discuss. It’s just that a subset of this forum has been discussing the future of Bluetooth audio for years and we fully expected an audio standard based on Bluetooth 5 (and onwards) to be here by now.
The Bluetooth SIG held a webinar on 12th November titled “A First Look at the Next Generation of Bluetooth Audio”. It’s for Bluetooth SIG members only so I have no idea what’s in it. We can be fairly confident of two things:
- There’s a new Bluetooth audio standard, and
- It’s on it’s way.
Sorry for the information overload.
I’ve seen mention of a new Bluetooth audio standard all over the web for a long time, but never anything official. So although this is not an announcement, it’s a sign on Bluetooth’s official website that things are moving forward. Watch this space I guess.
