HTC Connect, a DLNA streaming service built into many HTC phones (like the One series and its non-One brothers), is gaining some traction. Pioneer is releasing updates to its AV receivers today, adding HTC Connect compatibility for easy media streaming. Hit the source link to find out if your receiver will get the update.
It’s too bad that HTC Connect is exclusive to HTC phones. Just like Samsung AllShare, it’s proprietary. We need an open streaming method that is compatible across all Android devices and all TVs, gaming consoles, and other devices. Google may be stepping up soon, as is Zapstreak. Hopefully we will see their efforts materialize soon and catch traction!
