New Bluetooth audio architecture coming H2 ’19

https://www.androidauthority.com/bluetooth-audio-2019-1001214/

Android Authority spoke with Bluetooth SIG’s Senior Director of Market Development, Chuck Sabin and got quite a scoop, that's flying under the radar so far I think.

Some snippets:

First up, the new architecture sports a more efficient codec boasting higher quality playback. Although, we don’t yet know how this compares to other codecs currently on the market. Latency will also fall substantially to a point where it shouldn’t be noticeable.

The new audio architecture is also said to support a wide range of new features for a variety of devices. True wireless support caters for the growth in fully wireless earbuds. Multi-channel audio comes to speakers, enabling Bluetooth speakers to invade the home cinema space. The group is also looking at broadcast audio capabilities so that headsets and hearing aids can plug into the desired Bluetooth channel. This could be TV audio in a bar, the music at a concert, or in the future even tailored flight announcements at airports.
