    Jelly Bean brings USB Audio support to Android devices

    Digging into the new features and capabilities present in Jelly Bean, one item we have discovered is the addition of USB Audio. Support for USB Audio means audio from a Jelly Bean based device can be accessed via the USB port. This presents an alternative to streaming audio through the external speaker jack or a Bluetooth connection.

    Using USB Audio, hardware makers will be able to build audio dock devices to interface with Android powered phones and tablets. A good example of this was an Android.Connect dock on display from Gear4 during Google I/O. Check out the video after the break showing how this will work.

    Can you think of other devices for which the presence of USB Audio opens the development door?
    Is there a particular accessory you hope will now be available thanks to this new capability?
