Use your Galaxy S9 with Two Bluetooth Devices at a time
Do you know that Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S9 smartphone is powered by Bluetooth V5.0 which means that you can pair two Bluetooth speakers or headphones at a time? Its S8 and S8 Plus predecessors also come with this interesting Dual Audio feature too and even if you may not know about it, let me assure you that it’s arguably one of the most useful features thanks to its ability to connect your new handset to two different Bluetooth devices at once.
Yes, Dual Audio allows you to send your media audio to two different Bluetooth devices at the same time. This means that not only can you use two pairs of headphones, but you get to ditch the wires, too! After pairing both Bluetooth headphones to your Samsung Galaxy S9, you just need to enable Dual Audio so that both phones can receive the media audio.
Samsung mentions that there may be a slight lag in the sound output on the two connected devices, but you don’t you imagine that the issue is a serious one. Quite the opposite, I haven’t noticed any up to now and I have used this feature for quite a while. And besides that, the process of setting up two Bluetooth devices on the Galaxy S9 is a straightforward one, so waste no more time:
How to Use your Galaxy S9 with Two Bluetooth Devices at a time:
- Open Settings;
- Tap Connections;
- Then, tap Bluetooth;
- Toggle its switch to ON;
- Now, you can use the Scan option to find the available devices. Once you see them, just tap on them so that they get connected;
- Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner of the screen;
- Next, tap Dual audio;
- Toggle the OFF switch to ON in Dual Audio screen.
At this point, feel free to play anything on your smartphone having audio and see dual audio in action for yourself. The two speakers or earphones will be treated as a single audio output and you will hear music on both the connected devices. And even if when you enable the functionality on the handset you get a warning that one device may be slightly quieter than the other one, be sure that you won’t find much of a difference.
