I was wondering whether I could stream my PC’s audio to my Android tablet. After some research, I found that it is possible to stream your Windows PC’s audio to your Android-based phone/tablet. So in this post, I will tell you how you can stream your PC audio to your Android device within LAN using SoundWire.
Now you might wonder, what are the benefits of this! Listed below are some benefits that you may enjoy after following this tutorial:
- You can simply create a wireless music system within your home or at any other place.
- You can connect your Android device to large speakers and stream your Windows audio to rock a party.
- Some large speakers might not fit into your PC desk; you can create a wireless speaker system that doesn’t need to keep around your PC every time.
Stream Windows Audio to Android device
Things you’ll need: An internet connection, Windows PC, Android device.
Step 1: Click here to go to Georgie Labs and download Soundwire. Choose your Windows version and download the setup file. After installing Soundwire on your PC, you need to install it on your Android device. You may search for “soundwire” on Google Play Store, or you can simply click here.
Note: When you run Soundwire on Windows, your firewall would prompt you to grant access to the Internet and Network. Click on ‘Allow’ to run the software without any problems.
Step 2: Run Soundwire Server on Windows. Under the “Input Select” menu, choose the device you want to stream to your phone. Here I am using default multimedia device because it will let me stream all the audio, including system sounds, log-on sounds, etc. Note down the Server Address mentioned in the Soundwire window.
Step 3: On your Android device, run the installed Soundwire app. In the text box enter the Server Address you noted down in the previous step and now tap on the above large soundwire button, and you would be successfully connected to your server.
Note: To complete the above step, your device and Windows PC need to be connected to the same network.
Now you will able to easily stream your Windows Audio to an Android device, and you can connect the same device to external speakers to make your wireless sound system.
