Samsung on Tuesday announced that it will now allow other branded devices to connect and sync with its HomeSync storage. Previously limited to Samsung’s own devices, the 1TB storage device connects to HD TVs via HDMI and allows for up to eight separate accounts. Each account could then store and share music, photos, videos, and other content in and out of the house. Samsung HomeSync went on sale earlier this year and currently costs $299.
With HomeSync’s Android Media Center, enjoy the best of Android gaming, videos, and music, or flip through photos on your home television for a full HD viewing experience. You can also use your mobile device as a remote mouse, with easy control of compatible devices.
We took a look at the app listing in Google Play and found a rather short list of devices supported thus far. Here’s hoping that Samsung continues to expand compatibility.
- HTC smartphones : One , ButterFly
- Sony smartphones : Xperia Z , Xperia ZL , Xperia SP
- LG smartphones : Optimus G pro , Nexus4
