Google Just Bought A Startup That Turns Screens Into Speakers: Very often we see the search giant Google adds new items to its shopping cart. Now it looks like the new item in Google’s shopping cart is quite interesting. Google recently bought a startup company known as Redux.
Redux is a UK based startup company that is known for developing technology that turns screens into a speaker. Yes, you read that right! Redux allows a phone, Television and other electronic display to emit audio without the need for dedicated speakers.
Redux technology not only eliminates the dedicated speakers, it also eliminates the openings that are required for the audio to come out. According to the reports from Engadget, the startup has demonstrated Redux technology on a tablet, which plays music through the screen.

The demonstration showed a tablet with small components that made the screen vibrate like a soundbox layer. So, how useful the latest technology could be? Well, it’s possible that in near future, phone manufacturers are likely to launch even thinner phones by eliminating the need for a dedicated speaker.
According to the reports from Bloomberg, Redux’s acquisition might have happened in August 2017, although the information has only just been made public. Google haven’t share any details regarding the price of the transaction.
