If you have recently updated your Samsung Galaxy phone with Android 10 based One UI 2.0, you might be struggling to play music from your Samsung Galaxy phone on multiple Bluetooth headphones or Speakers simultaneously as the Samsung has removed the Dual Audio feature with Android 10(Q) update and has replaced it with Samsung's Media and Devices App.
The Samsung Media and devices App is available in your Samsung Galaxy Quick Panel layout and is easily accessible now in One UI 2.0 as compared to the Dual Audio Feature present in the One UI 1.0 on previous Android versions.
Samsung Dual Audio feature was enabled on the below Galaxy devices and is replaced by Media and Devices app on Android 10.
S10 & 10+
S9 & S9+
S8 & S8+
The Dual Audio is not limited to above Samsung devices and other phones might get this feature in future with Android 10 update depending on the country models.
I would highly recommend to update your Samsung Galaxy media and devices feature as it contains the Samsung's latest fixes for any bugs in connectivity.
Follow the below Quick step-by-step guide to listen to music on 2 Bluetooth speakers simultaneously. We have used the Samsung Galaxy S10+ for the below example:
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. Connect the first Bluetooth device
I am going to play music on my 2 Bluetooth headphones from Samsung Galaxy S10+ , the first one I use for my daily commute to office and the second one for running.
I will pair the SoundPEATS True Free+ first. These are one of the best cheap true wireless earbuds with advanced Bluetooth connectivity and they pair with my phone automatically as soon as I remove them from the charging case.
3. Connect your second Bluetooth device
Now, I will pair my second Bluetooth headphone Anker Sound Buds Slim by switching them ON. It also connects to my Samsung phone as soon as I switch them on.
Your phone is now connected to 2 Bluetooth headphones, however media will only play on one of the two Bluetooth devices by default.
4. Playing media on 2 Bluetooth headphones after pairing
You can now play the media on second Bluetooth device by using the Samsung's Media feature in Android 10 based One UI 2.0, which is accessible through Notification panel of your Samsung Galaxy phone.
Select the second Bluetooth device in Media screen
You will be able to listen the same songs on 2 Bluetooth headphones or speakers now.
