Western Digital has introduced the newest version of its WD Photos photo viewer app, which now works with the WD TV Live Hub media centre from an Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android-compatible smartphone or tablet.
Consumers can create content with their iOS or Android device and send it directly to anyone with a WD TV Live Hub media center for big screen viewing and enjoyment. This feature is ideal for business travellers who want to keep in touch with their family and share their adventures in a fun and creative way. It is also a great way for students and distant family members to share life’s moments as they happen.
In addition, WD Photos photo viewer app allows consumers to remotely access content stored on their WD TV Live Hub media centre or My Book Live network drive from their portable device, anywhere in the world. This provides access to hundreds of photos without reducing memory on a users’ iPhone or Android device while allowing others on the home network to continue to enjoy the same content. And, if a user’s portable device is lost or misplaced, the content still resides safely within the home.
“The WD TV Live Hub media centre already lets users store and play 1 TB of their personal videos, photos and music plus enjoy the best of Internet services including Netflix, YouTube, Pandora and Facebook, all without a computer,” said Dale Pistilli, Vice-President of WD branded products. “Now with the new release of WD Photos, the world’s first smartphone-to-HDTV video sharing app, WD TV Live Hub helps users stay in touch with friends and family in high-definition.”
