Onkyo to release first Android companion app

Home audio specialists Onkyo have announced the company's first app for Android devices. The Onkyo remote app for Android will allow owners to integrate wireless audio from their Android device into an Onkyo home theater system. The app also turns an Android device into a remote control.

The app will also allow users to browse networked content by using the touch-screen display on their Android device to navigate menus and control a variety of functions, such as selecting the input source or adjusting the volume and tone. It will also allow users to control output in individual zones in a multi-room distributed audio set-up.

The Onkyo Remote app for Android will be available in August as a free download from the Android Market and is compatible with all Onkyo receivers released in 2011 as well as the TX-8050 network receiver.
