Samsung is developing an app that allows parents to send lullabies to premature babies

Samsung is working on an app capable of sending recordings straight from parents to premature babies who are still in the hospital, Engadget reports. The app, called Voices of Life, allows parents to record stories and lullabies, and then removes any high-frequency sounds that would be uncomfortable for the baby to hear.

Samsung released a video about the app that shows a small speaker set inside the baby's incubator presumably connected to the app. Samsung seems to be pushing the idea of replicating a womb, and only describes how a mother could use Voices of Life, but it seems probable that fathers would be able to use it as well.

It's not clear yet how close the app is to being finished, or when it might be publicly available.
