LG brings Google Cast support to its Music Flow speakers

LG’s Music Flow audio gear now lets you stream tunes straight from your phone thanks to the baked in Google Cast support. 

The newly-expanded Music Flow range incorporates WiFi-enabled battery-powered speakers and soundbars for TVs, all of which will now let you send audio files from your iOS or Android device or Windows, Mac or Chromebook laptop. 

You’ll be able to stream songs from Google Play Music, Deezer, TuneIn Radio, Pandora and others. The range also supports Spotify Connect, so Premium subscribers can sync playlists to their phones and wirelessly cast them to their LG speakers. 

Byung-hoon Min, senior vice president and head of the CAV division at the LG Home Entertainment Company said: “We are pleased to announce that LG Music Flow will be among the first audio speakers to feature Google Cast. 

“Google Cast is a perfect companion for LG’s Music Flow audio system. We are excited to work with Google in making music a more enjoyable experience for consumers worldwide.” 

LG’s MusicFlow range features the award-winning H3, which costs around £149 and chimes in with 30W of power, the H5, which is priced at £229 and weighs in with 40W, and the top of the range H7, which pumps out 70W of pure musical goodness for the princely sum of £329. 

The newly minted H4 portable speaker, which we first saw just before Christmas, will join the family in May too, chucking out 20W. UK pricing for the device is yet to be revealed.

The company also unveiled three new streaming sound bars compatible with the system, the LAS751M, LAS851M and LAS950M, which should sit nicely beneath anyone’s TV, they’ll cost US-based users $499(£339), $599 (£407) and $999 (£678) respectively, though, again, there’s no official word on what they’ll cost when they fetch up on our golden shores.

Google Cast support will begin rolling out to LG’s Music Flow range this month with the exception of the diminutive H4, which users will have to wait until the end of May for.
