How to Turn an Android Phone Into a Computer Speaker
Unlike notebooks, PCs are usually not equipped with built-in speakers. So when you want to enjoy music, generally have to plug in a headset or speaker first.
But if there are no two, we can use an Android phone or tablet to become a computer speaker. How to? Here, there are easy tips we can try.
Just use the Airfoil Speakers application, WiFi Speaker, SoundWire and others. With this application, we can play music from a PC to an Android device wirelessly. When trying, we ourselves use SoundWire
The SoundWire application can be downloaded for free on the Google Play Store. If you do not want to be disturbed by advertising and identification process every 45 minutes. We recommend buying the full version.
In addition to being free from advertising interruptions, paid SoundWire provides a number of additional features, including unlimited Opus audio compression that can be used up to 10 connections.
Then, do the steps below:
Download SoundWire at georgielabs.net. This application is available for Windows, Linux, and Raspberry Pi operating systems.
Make sure your Android device and PC are connected in the same network. Then run two SoundWire applications on Android and Desktop. Automatically the two will be connected to each other.
In the SoundWire Server window on the PC, we will see Input Select. If you are using Windows 7 or 8, fill in the Default Multimedia Device. While for XP users, select Stereo Mix, Wave Out Mix or What U Hear. Linux users are advised to follow the instructions in the README file.
Try playing music from a PC to hear audio on an Android device. Volume level settings can only be adjusted through the SoundWire Server on the PC.
