In its latest build, Android 12 have been including many new features and one of them is the audio-coupled Haptics effect which just amazed everyone and mainly, the gamers by automatically syncing your phone’s vibrations with the ongoing audio session and making it more immersive to the users. Now, Qualcomm is trying to bring the most advanced Haptic capabilities to its android devices by signing a partnership with Lofelt.
In a press release on the matter, LofeIt revealed that it will work with Qualcomm to deliver a “universal haptic software framework that runs natively on the Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform to enhance Android phones with next-generation haptics for mobile gaming and other immersive experiences.”
Speaking of the partnership, LofeIt’s Chief Technical Officer, Gwydion ap Dafydd, was quoted saying, “Combining Lofelt haptics with the extendable Snapdragon platform will create a new generation of Android devices that deliver rich, natural haptic experiences. We also offer developers and engineers more cross-platform parity and an adaptive technology that can be directed at a specific system.”
Lofelt is trying to bring more advancements to this feature by enabling Haptics on device accessories, like supported gaming controllers, which would work without any device-specific APIs in future. Besides that Lofelt is trying to fill the gap between the two platforms, both iOS and Android with its universal software framework and API and thereby level up the haptics experience on Android devices.
