How to connect your Samsung Phone with two Bluetooth Speakers?
The steps below will enable the dual audio on your Samsung phone to listen music on 2 Bluetooth speakers or headphones simultaneously. I have used my Samsung Galaxy S10+ to connect to 2 Bluetooth headphones - Jabra Elite 75t Active and the Apple AirPods Pro.
1. Switch on the Bluetooth on your Android 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.
These ultimate pair of Bluetooth earbuds by Jabra are on Black Friday Sale.
3. Connect your second Bluetooth device
The second pair of Bluetooth headphones I connected with my phone was Apple AirPods Pro, they also get connected to my Samsung Galaxy phone automatically after taking them out of their charging case.
As you can see above, my Samsung phone is now connected to 2 Bluetooth headphones, however the audio only plays on one of the two Bluetooth devices by default.
