Update: The Moto Stream is now live on Motorola’s website. It costs $49, uses Bluetooth and NFC technology to connect to devices, charges over USB, and has a 3.5mm to RCA connector for audio. Motorola also provides a bit more insight into this “DJ experience” it hinted at by describing a software feature called Heist Mode:
Heist Mode allows up to five devices to control any speaker. There’s no setup and it’s universally compatible with all Bluetooth® devices, so anyone can jump in and drop a track. And if you don’t like what’s playing, heist it.
Motorola might have just been the source of its own leak with the tweet pictured below hitting the company’s official Twitter account earlier today before being promptly removed. While the tweet described “Moto Stream” as some type of DJ accessory/experience when used, presumably, with a Motorola smartphone, the video above focuses more on the hardware. The YouTube description hints that the hardware will make any speaker wireless and allow streaming from smartphones, tablets, and computers:
Moto Stream lets you set music free, turning any speaker wireless and allowing you to stream music from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. And if that wasn’t liberating enough, you have 300 ft of roam range to play with.
There’s no clues to whether the hardware pictured will also include some type of new app for the software side, but we’re expecting to hear from Motorola about the Moto Stream shortly. A screenshot of the tweet removed from Motorola’s Twitter account earlier today is below:
While Motorola is still technically a Google company, the Lenovo’s $2.9 billion purchase of the company is expected to complete later this year.
