Is Bluetooth About To Take A Major Leap Forward? 

Learn about the exciting new features coming to wireless Bluetooth devices later this year from the Founder of Packetcraft.

Has the time come for Bluetooth to take a necessary step forward? Does it really make a difference which codec your headphones or source device support? The quiet release of Bluetooth version 5.2 three years ago set the stage for the future of the wireless protocol. New features have been added to Bluetooth’s core specification, including improvements to audio fidelity, which are set to begin making their way into the market this year.

Some of the new Bluetooth features are:

  • Auracast enables audio broadcasting, allowing a single device to transmit to an unlimited number of devices in proximity. 
  • LC3 (Low Complexity Communications Codec) is the next generation Bluetooth audio (aka “LE Audio”) standard which improves upon the original (“classic”) audio protocol (SBC). Although still a lossy codec, it can use less power to extend battery life, while a new psychoacoustic compression algorithm improves audio fidelity.

In this episode, we speak with John Yi, Founder and CEO of Packetcraft — a provider of Bluetooth solutions for device makers. Join us on a deep dive into the future of Bluetooth and what to look out for later this year.
