The playback of most media types, including music, is controlled directly by the Homey media component. When writing your own media app you only need to be concerned with implementing the features that make your app unique.
Because of the open and community driven nature of Homey the media platform has been designed to support a vast number of use cases. This ensures that any media feature that is not yet supported today, can be easily supported in the future.
With Homey Media you can add:
- Players that stream music from online services
- Speakers that extend the musical range of Homey beyond the confines of one room
- Codecs that enable Homey to interact with a vast array of external media devices
