You can connect to two Bluetooth speakers at once on your Samsung Phones through Media and Devices panel.

How to connect your Samsung Galaxy with two Bluetooth Speakers?
The steps below will enable the dual audio on your Samsung phone to connect to the multiple Bluetooth devices at once. I have used the Samsung Galaxy S10+ to connect to Jabra Elite 75t Active and Apple AirPods Pro.
1. Switch On the Bluetooth on your Phone
Open the notification panel of your Samsung Galaxy phone by swiping from top to bottom on your phone screen and switch on the Bluetooth.
2. Pair the first Bluetooth device
My first pair of Bluetooth headphones is Jabra Elite Active 75t, they pair automatically with my phone as soon as I remove them from their charging case.
3. Connect your second Bluetooth device
The second pair of Bluetooth headphones I tested was Apple AirPods Pro, it also get connected to my Samsung Galaxy phone automatically after taking them out of their charging case.
Similar to above, you can see now that your phone connected to 2 Bluetooth devices, however audio only plays on one of the two Bluetooth devices by default.
4. Select both Bluetooth devices in Samsung Media
Access your phone's Media feature through Quick Panel of your Samsung Galaxy phone. Just Swipe down on your phone screen to access Quick Panel.
If you do not see the Media and Devices in Quick Panel of your Samsung Galaxy phone, enable it by following this step by step video
Select the second Bluetooth device in Media screen as shown above and you can control each Bluetooth device separately as shown below.

Explore Automations with Samsung Bluetooth
Samsung Bixby can now automate and enhance your media experience while watching the videos and listening the music on your Bluetooth speakers and headphones. Head on to the Bixby routines settings on your phone and explore the media experience suggested routines by Samsung on the Discover page as below.
These routines will provide the best settings for streaming video, music playlist, reading and Separate app sound , which can be activated in a click.
However, to take out the best of the Bluetooth wireless technology we have explored and found the best Bixby routines to play the music on your speakers and Headphones hands free without even touching your phone:
Playing Music automatically on the Bluetooth headphone as soon as it is started.
Drive hands free with automatic start of music on your Car speakers.
Samsung Bixby does not yet have the feature to start the playlist on 2 Bluetooth devices simultaneously but we expect this to be happening soon if Samsung includes the Media panel in the Bixby capsules.
