Aha 3.4 is available in the iTunes app store today (coming to the Google Play Store later this week), and the release brings arguably one of our most requested features. Both versions now feature support for voice commands. Along with that comes support for more m4a formatted files and streams, bringing even more content into the mix. We’ve also improved how we handle streaming content to improve playback in spotty coverage areas.
If you have content…we’ve got answers! As more and more people turn to the web to get their audio entertainment, the opportunities for content providers continue to grow. But the real challenges for a lot of publishers can be simply getting their content in front of the right audience, and then making it easy for said audience to access the content easily.
At this week’s New York International Auto Show three well-known automotive brands - Scion (a Toyota brand), Jeep and Dodge (both Chrysler brands) - announced that Aha will be coming to the dashboards of 2014 model year vehicles.
At CES way back in January, Aha announced a contract with Honda, a very exciting milestone for our team.
Today, Aha and Honda shared more details of that partnership as Honda unveiled HondaLinkTM, a new, personalized driving experience that streams a world of information and entertainment to Honda vehicles. The HondaLink system featuring Aha content will first roll out in the all-new 2013 Honda Accord later this year.
Totally forgot to mention last week, but not only have we added more flexibility around selecting supported languages in the app … we also added availability in more App Stores.
Aha was already available in the iTunes and Google Play app stores in the following contries:
It seems like I’ve been waiting for years for the day we would release version 2.2 of an app so I could make a Deuce-Deuce reference. Now I can tip my 40 for Eazy and tell you all about the actual Aha news.
Existing users shouldn’t see any major visual changes, but you should notice better performance on a lot of the internet radio stations, as well as a lot of new stations. That’s because we’ve rolled out 1,000s of additional AAC stations.
More details to come, but I’m here to confirm that the rumors ARE TRUE! Aha is now available on Android devices. Along with the recent major update to our iOS app, we are debuting the new design and functionality for Android.
Greetings from CES in Las Vegas! The Aha team is busy making headlines and having fun demoing our first Aha integration in a Subaru BRZ. Here’s a link to the press release we issued this morning announcing that Aha will be in Subaru and Honda vehicles beginning in model year 2013.
We may be hard at work on the major overhaul that will come with versions 1.0 for Android and 2.0 for iOS (as glimpsed in this recent screenshot), but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some changes here and there for the existing iOS users.
Since we first launched for iOS devices there have been Android users asking when they were going to be shown some love.
