Using a combination of a smartphone’s GPS and motion detectors, as well as audio cues picked up through the microphone, experimental music applications promise to create customized soundtracks for listeners. And, just as iPods were used for playing songs before podcasts took off, news and information is following music’s lead. Bose sells a pair of sunglasses capable of offering the wearer audio augmented reality (AR). However, the technology is not yet in wide release. Smart Speaker Use Is Growing. Will News Grow With It?
