How to connect 2 Bluetooth speakers or headphones to Samsung device

We all love sharing music, especially our favorite songs or playlist. However,  no one wants to share a friend’s unkempt earpiece or earbuds.

The Samsung Dual Audio Bluetooth allows users to share audio from one Samsung phone to two wireless headsets or speakers.

Now, let’s dive into how to set up Dual Audio while discussing the advantages as well.


What is Samsung Dual Audio?

Samsung Dual Audio allows you to connect two Bluetooth speakers and headphones to one Samsung device. This means two friends, partners or siblings can synchronize to share the viewing or listening experience. 

This dual Bluetooth feature made its smartphone debut with the Samsung Galaxy S8 series and has remained a hushed mainstay ever since. 

This multi-device Bluetooth feature has been available on Samsung devices for over a decade and can be traced back to the Samsung G600 slider phone.

How to use Samsung Dual Audio with dual Bluetooth headphones

To enable Samsung’s Dual Audio feature on your phone, first, you must pair each device with the desired Samsung Galaxy device.

Step 1: Go to the settings icon in your phone menu and click on it to open your phone Settings.

Step 2: Click on Connections; this will be the first tab on a Samsung Galaxy S10e running Android 10, One UI version 2.1. Tap Bluetooth and turn the slider to On.

Step 3: Go to Bluetooth pairing mode from your Bluetooth headset. This often requires you to press and hold the Bluetooth headphones’ power button until the LED flashes. 

Most wireless earbuds may require you to remove both earbuds from the case simultaneously. If your headset’s pairing process is different from this or doesn’t work as described, you should refer back to the included manual.

Step 4: Slide down your phone’s notification menu, and tap Media.

Check the devices you want to use for listening. You can disable playback on a device from the Media page any time you want.

When Dual Audio sharing is enabled from your Samsung smartphone, the program allows you to adjust the volume levels of each headset. 

This option is appreciated as you don’t want to accidentally blast your friend with a high volume that could cause damage to their hearing, or hurt them.

Considering that different Bluetooth audio devices have different transmission latency rates, Samsung doesn’t recommend using Dual Audio to output sound from speakers concurrently.


Do non-Samsung phones have Dual Audio?

Apple phones come with a feature called “share audio,” which the company introduced with iPadOS 13.1 and iOS 13.1. 

 The share audio feature is quite similar to Samsung Dual Audio, so you and a friend can concurrently stream synchronized audio from a single source. This works with any headset with a W1 chip and Apple’s H1 chip.
