Samsung announces LE Audio support for Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and several TVs

Samsung Electronics today announced a new software update for Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and Samsung Smart TVs, extending LE Audio functionality to Samsung TVs with Auracast broadcast audio technology, enabling transmission to nearby Bluetooth devices Rich and complex audio.

According to reports, the Auracast broadcast audio technology of the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro earbuds and Samsung 2023 Neo QLED 8K TV and 2023 MICRO LED TV will be pushed through software updates from September this year. The new LE Audio feature allows users to connect multiple sets of Buds to a TV, whereas previously users were limited to a maximum of two devices.

As previously reported, the Bluetooth LE Audio specification was announced in early 2020. Bluetooth LE Audio is a new generation of Bluetooth audio technology standards, which can not only improve the performance of standard Bluetooth audio but also have a variety of new application cases. Its most prominent feature is the inclusion of a high-quality, power-efficient new LC3 audio codec.

The LC3 encoder transmits data over LE Isochronous Channels and utilizes new middleware to deliver and control audio content. For consumers, LE Audio technology can be more energy efficient, can support smaller Bluetooth audio devices, extend battery life, and is compatible with the existing aptX protocol. LE Audio enables audio listening, video playback, voice/video calls and intelligent voice assistant control. It integrates a multi-stream audio function and broadcast audio function, which allows users to share audio with multiple devices, and share it to multiple Bluetooth speakers or headphones. In addition, the location-based audio-sharing function allows group visitors to listen to shared Bluetooth audio explanations in public places such as museums and art galleries. This feature is also available in conference centers.
