The latest version of Audio Precision’s Android audio test app includes support for Android versions 4/5/6 and Android N Developer Preview 5. The app promises fast, automated evaluation of phones and tablet, including hands-free Bluetooth audio test without requiring the initiation of a phone call. Of note, the Android app is fully-integrated with, and able to harness the versatility of, APx audio measurement software and analyzers. As a system, it supports analog test of the mobile device’s TRRS jack microphone input and headphone output. For Bluetooth audio measurement scenarios, the app supports A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) downlink testing as well as HFP (hands free profile) downlink and uplink testing, both wide- and narrowband. No phone call is required for Bluetooth HFP evaluation, streamlining the overall test process for developers. The HFP device under test (DUT) does not even require a SIM card. AP’s Android app is available as a courtesy download to registered users of AP.com. It requires an APx500 Series analyzer with a Bluetooth hardware option and is supported by APx500 audio measurement software, version 4.2 or later.
