How are you able to connect a couple of set of headphones or speaker Bluetooth speaker to the same Android phone or iPhone? Bluetooth devices are now a standard, but when you wish to have to receive a surround sound effect or share your music with someone else in the same place, with wired systems all you had to do was once buy a cheap audio splitter. Turns out though that there are a couple of ways in which you’ll do something similar with the Bluetooth connection.
Connecting a couple of Bluetooth speakers or headphones in large part depends on the equipment you have, and the local Bluetooth version you make stronger on your phone.
For example, Bluetooth v4.2 supports only one-on-one device connection of up to 30 metres. Bluetooth v5, then again, expands connection to up to 120 metres and lets you twosome up to two devices at once. Some speakers from Bose have their own audio apps that offer the functionality to twosome two speakers at once. On the other hand, not all companies supply that convenience.
How to connect two Bluetooth headphones and speakers to one phone
Most phones today allow dual audio (on Android) and audio sharing (on iPhone) capabilities i.e. the ability to play audio out of two devices at the same time. iPhone 8 models and above make stronger Audio sharing feature, so unless you have a very old handset, chances are high that that your phone must offer that natively. Step one then would be to check out connecting your headphones and speakers separately to your Bluetooth when you twosome them for the first time.
In a similar fashion, if in case you have a Samsung Galaxy S8 series or later mannequin, then the company natively offers a Dual Audio option that allows users to twosome a couple of speakers and headphones. This may also be found in Bluetooth Settings. Other users can try this method, given they’ve the correct equipment at hand:
Android users want to go to Bluetooth Settings and twosome either Bluetooth headphones or speakers separately.
Once connected, tap the three-dot icon on the correct and click on Advanced Settings. Toggle on the ‘dual audio’ option whether not already turned on. This must enable users to hook up with two devices at once.
For users running on Android 10 and above, they may be able to access their connected Bluetooth devices by clicking on Media in the Quick Panel and selecting both the paired devices for audio output.
iPhone users want to go to Regulate Center. Tap on Airplay icon and make a selection either the paired wireless headphones or speakers to output audio concurrently. Deselecting any one of the most headphones or speakers will stop the sharing of audio on that specific device.
