Posh Thermostat Maker Nest Gearing up for Audio Launch

By Gary Cutlack on at

It looks like the maker of the "smart" thermostat is moving into the world of streaming audio, with Nest Labs posting a job advert asking for help to "Build a world class audio team" to add a new string to its gadgetry bow.

The job ad, for the position of Head of Audio within the new Nest Audio division, wants someone who can "Develop an audio roadmap for Nest products, including HW and SW, that can support delightful user experiences and innovative features" -- making it sound like it's got HD audio specialist Sonos in its sights.

Or perhaps it's just working on some notification sounds and wants them to be the best notification sounds? [Nest via Telegraph]
