Libratone's speaker range can now stream music to Android and Windows devices.

Libratone speakers can now stream music wirelessly to Android and Windows devices. The company released an update enabling DLNA streaming to compatible devices and plans on releasing a dedicated Android application in February.

Apart from the impressive sound and dazzling Scandanavian design, Libratone's speakers are renowned for their PlayDirect functionality. PlayDirect allows their speakers to communicate directly with Apple AirPlay devices without using a WiFi network. Previously it was a feature of the Zipp portable speaker alone, but the update now brings PlayDirect to its Live and Lounge siblings.

Libratone also claims their PlayDirect technology will work with Android and Windows devices.

"This update underscores our commitment to continually innovate our products, deliver uncompromising quality and expand our customers' options for making the most of their music."
