Lots of people use ambient noise to fall asleep or relax while cooking, reading or performing menial chores, but the Endel App recently released an update to provide users with the ambient sounds of winter for all of their cozy activities.

 

Endel is available in the Apple App Store and gives users the ability to escape into an integrated, cross-platform audio ecosystem. The team behind the app takes special care to create engrossing soundscapes while avoiding the stereotypical sounds of the season, like jingle bells and popular winter songs.

 

The algorithm-based program uses neuroscience to reduce stress and anxiety while promoting productive brain activity. The app uses various inputs like location, weather, heart rate and time to create pleasing soundscapes on its own.

 

Endel was founded in 2018 and is currently only available on Apple devices. In the future, the service is coming to MacOS, tvOS, Amazon Alexa and Android devices.

 

“We are excited to bring more relaxation and mental well-being to the winter season,” said Oleg Stavitsky, founder and CEO, Endel.

 

Downloading the Endel app is free, but different subscription plans are available for purchase. One month starts at $2.99 and a lifetime membership costs $89.99.
