It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce that after five incredible years, our original consumer Chirp app has finally been laid to rest. He was a pioneer of data-over-audio, the first ever to bring the Internet of Sound to the world stage. He was a mainstay of millions of people’s daily lives, of tens of thousands of students’ educational routines, and he traveled the globe, bringing awe and wonder to devices across six continents. He was the star that graced the screens of millions of computers in videos created by his adoring fans, and he’s been recognised and honoured at some of the most prestigious venues, including Buckingham Palace.

In his loss, his spirit remains as the blueprint that helped take us to the point the company is at now, the creators of the leading B2B data-over-audio technology that’s used by brands around the world. It is in his honour that we have worked tirelessly to cultivate the next generation of this innovative technology to allow our now many clients and partners to bring the same magic to their customers that our own Chirp app brought to our own consumer users for all those years.

A year and a bit ago, we made the strategic decision to move away from being a B2C application company, and transformed ourselves into the current market-leading B2B data-over-audio technology house we have become. Since this transition, we’ve achieved unrivalled success on the global stage, becoming the first and only B2B data-over-audio technology to go beyond the mere proof of concept or small localised launches, and successfully launch in the market on a mass scale with numerous multinational brands and corporations across a wide variety of sectors. Our technology has not only been proven to be best-in-class, but has become by far the most widely adopted B2B data-over-audio technology, and the most trusted in the world. Our technology is integrated across hundreds of products and applications, enabling hundreds of millions of devices of all kinds to connect and interact, and used in over 90 countries.

The invaluable learnings we’ve gained from our first iteration have allowed Chirp’s technology to not only move light years ahead in the market, but also beyond just smartphone applications on iOS and Android. Throughout the year we’ve launched vastly upgraded versions of our market-leading audible and ultrasonic technology to empower brands and companies to connect with their consumer users like never before.

We have now proudly brought to the world the first and only data-over-audio SDKs in JavaScript, Python, Windows, Linux, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, various Smart-TV data streaming platforms and Web Browsers. Each comes in both audible and ultrasound versions, and what truly makes our technology so powerful and unique is that all our SDKs are fully interoperable- catering to our clients and partners every specific use case and need.

In retiring the original Chirp app, it marks the end of an amazing era, but we move forward confidently knowing that today represents the start of a completely new era for us, where we can look back with fond memories, and together with our present and future partners we can look forward with great excitement. For us, this is just a new chapter in our journey, and only the beginning of what’s still to come.
