Caavo Announces Deeper Integration with Sonos & More

At Caavo, we're making the future of the simplified, smart home a reality. Today we're excited to announce our latest step forward: You can now view Sonos speakers and streaming and live entertainment on the TV using one voice-controlled universal remote. Also, families can now use multiple Control Centers to check-in and stay connected through Telescope.

As Andrew Einaudi,  our CEO and co-founder shares, “Control Center puts all of your content in one place, and now everything else in your connected home as well. You can now search your Sonos playlists, and watch all your favorite entertainment across live and streaming TV on the best screens in your home.”

Furthering our mission to connect everyone and everything to the TV, we're happy to share a suite of new features for our Control Center universal remote and smart home theater hub (these features will begin rolling out to current customers over the next two weeks): 

 

Say Goodbye to TV Typing   

TV viewers can all agree that when searching for a show, the letter-by-letter up/down scroll within Search menu pages is a major pain point. Control Center now solves this frustration with the addition of Dictation mode. Just open any app or device across Roku, cable and satellite TV, and Apple TV, press and hold the Share button, and say what you're searching for. Control Center's machine vision automatically fills in the search screen for you so you never have to waste time typing into a remote again. 

Sonos 

Caavo recently earned the Works With Sonos badge certifying that Control Center seamlessly connects with the Sonos Home Sound System. You can now launch playlists and favorites as well as play and listen to music directly from Control Center. 

Stay Connected Using Telescope

Use Control Center's Telescope feature to see what family members are watching in your home. Use the Control Center remote to speak and send on-screen messages from one TV to another when each is connected to a Control Center. Tell the kids their dinner is ready and they can reply that they are on their way.

Smart TVs

Control Center now supports search and playback on Smart TVs such as Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV, including models that support Dolby Vision.

Continual Improvements

Caavo has implemented updates to improve content discoverability, device set-up, and general navigation with the Caavo remote. New updates also include broader voice support and hints, simplified set-up, and general UI polish. Lastly, Caavo now supports the DirecTV On Demand catalog and direct linking to that content. 

Simplified Pricing

Control Center is available for purchase in two options:
