Smartphones, smart speakers, connected cars… and now robots are the new frontier for music streaming. In India at least, courtesy of a partnership between educational robotics company Miko and streaming service Gaana. The latter will be part of the ‘Miko Max’ subscription for the Miko 2 robot, but will also be available for free while the Covid-19 lockdown continues in India.
For Gaana it represents a new device partnership, but also a way to bring its service to children – the key users (if not purchasers) of the Miko 2 robot.
The streaming service has already been building its catalogue of stories and children’s music, according to the Economic Times.
