Top 45 Multimedia Trends in September

From Interactive Gamer Media to Shareable Social Media Music

— September 26, 2020 — Tech
These September 2020 multimedia trends range from multi-platform gamer headsets to shareable social media music.

The new Turtle Beach gaming headsets are a standout and are marketed as a way to boost gaming performance and comfort. The Stealth 600 and 700 headsets are compatible with existing and upcoming PlayStation and Xbox systems and are equipped with USB-C charging ports that allow for seamless connectivity.

Snapchat's new music videos feature is another notable example that s currently being tested in Australia and New Zealand. While the music video feature is being tested for a limited time, Snapchat aims to make it available to most English speaking countries in the coming months. The feature is a result of a partnership with Warner Music Group, Warner Chappell, Universal Music Publishing Group, The National Music Publishers Association, and Merlin.
