There’s no doubting that a good Bluetooth speaker is definitely useful to have. They’re an easy way for you to take good quality audio with you wherever you go. However, in many cases a portable speaker might not be able to carry the volume that you require.
In this instance, it makes sense for you to connect two or more Bluetooth speakers together. This way, you still have speakers that are portable, but you’ll get a lot more volume and it’ll likely be better for using in the outdoors. But how can you connect multiple Bluetooth speakers together, and is it even possible?
Well, the good news is that it is definitely possible for you to connect multiple Bluetooth devices together. But, there are some requirements to that. Let’s look at little closer at how you can do this.
How to Connect Multiple Bluetooth Speakers to One Device
If you want to connect multiple Bluetooth speakers together, then you’re going to need to download the Amp.me app. From here, you can follow these instructions to play music through the speakers.
- First things first, you’re going to go ahead and download and open the Amp.me app.
- Secondly, when the app is open, go ahead and click on the small plus symbol in the top right of the app.
- You’ll see a list of different services come up to use, including Spotify. Select the music service that you use and press the connect button to start up the link.
- Then, you’ll be redirected to log into your music account if you’re using Spotify or another alternative.
- Finally, once you’ve logged into your account, you can go ahead and select one of your playlists or whatever music you want to play.
Currently, Amp.me is the only way for you to connect two off branded speakers together for the majority of us – you can with certain other methods (keep reading to see more).
Amp.me is kind of cheating, as essentially you will need two phones to do this – it connects the phones to the speakers individually, and then connects the two phones together.
But generally Amp.me is seen as the common method to be able to use more than one speaker at the same time.
It’s very easy for you to sync your phones together via their intuitive app, and you can also watch videos on different devices at the same time with Amp.me as well.
Overall, it’s a pretty simple way for you to use multiple Bluetooth speakers at the same time. However, it’s not the only way that you can do this.
Which speakers and brands have the ability to connect multiple speakers?
Whilst you could consider using the app above, there are other ways out there that you can connect to multiple Bluetooth speakers.
However, you’ll need to have the right speaker for the job, or the right phone with the capability to do this. Here are some methods of connecting multiple speakers up together.
Samsung fans can rejoice, as the newer models actually have the ability to connect themselves to two different devices at the same time. This is the case for the newer Galaxy models, as well as other phones that the retailer have recently released.
You can do this pretty simply on a Samsung phone – you simple need to go into the phones settings to do this. You will be able to connect to two different speakers at the same time, which at the time of writing, is actually pretty unique in the current market.
You can also connect to a set of headphones at the same time as a speaker too, as it allows for connection to two devices.
One of the best ways for you to connect to two different Bluetooth speakers at the same time is to go completely Apple and invest in the Homepod. This is essentially Apple’s response to the increasingly popularity to the Google Nest and the Amazon Alexa series.
Anyway, if you own an iPhone and you have two or more Homepod’s in your house, then the good news is that you have the ability to connect to more than one of these at the same time.
You can do this by simply going into your iPhone’s settings and go into the Dual Audio section, which will allow you to connect to two of these speakers at the same time.
One of the lesser known speaker brands out there (especially in comparison to the others mentioned here), Ultimate Ears have become more well known in recent years for their variety of budget wireless speakers.
The good news with Ultimate Ears is that you have the capability to connect to two of their speakers at the same time. So, they could potentially be a budget friendly way for you to connect to two different speakers at once.
Bose is one of the most popular brands when it comes to home speakers and especially Bluetooth speakers. So, it’s no surprise that they were one of the first brands to give you the capability to connect to two different speakers at the same time.
All you need to do in this case is to download the Bose Connect app, which will allow you to connect to two different Bose speakers at once. You can get this app pretty easily from the App Store or the Google Play store.
Then, when you install the Bose Connect app on your device, it’ll give you the option to connect to more than one speaker at the same time. This is pretty simple to do, and one of the benefits of opting to go with Bose over another brand.
All in all, it’s still not as easy as it probably should be for you to connect to two different speakers at the same time, especially if the speakers are a different brand to each other.
As all of these devices are working over the same frequency band, you’d think that it would be simpler for phone companies to be able to integrate these capabilities in their phones. Let’s see in the near future if it becomes easier and hopefully will become integrated into every phone.
