Jawbone MyTALK Feature Adds Music, Podcasts, Driving Directions and More
Aliph announced that Jawbone ICON users can now listen to music, podcasts, sports scores and more. Powered by A2DP technology, this new capability lets users listen to a broad range of audio files in hands-free fashion. Any audio available on their cell phone can now be streamed into the user’s ear via the Bluetooth connection to Jawbone ICON.
New hands-free, wire-free mobile lifestyle includes rich set of audio choices
Users can listen to podcasts or music while running errands throughout the day. They can receive turn-by-turn driving directions whispered into their ear while navigating the streets with both eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel. Users can even discreetly listen to the live play-by-play of a big sporting event while working at a desk. The addition of streaming audio allows Jawbone ICON users to be more productive and connected, all while remaining hands-free and discreet.

Existing Jawbone ICON customers can visit the “Innovations” section of MyTALK at mytalk.jawbone.com and add this feature to their headset at no cost.
“Customers said they wished their Jawbone ICON could both be used for phone calls and for listening to music, eliminating the need for wires. We responded, and now with the MyTALK platform, we are able to satisfy their desire immediately. This is just one example of how Jawbone MyTALK breathes life into Jawbone ICON and lets our users get access to the latest functionality in seconds and with just a few mouse clicks,” said Hosain Rahman, Aliph’s CEO.
