Share music with your friend using your Galaxy phone

Music is meant to be enjoyed with others. But sometimes having to pair and unpair your audio devices can be a pain. That won't be a problem with the new Music Share feature on select Galaxy phone (S20, Z Flip, Note10, Fold, and S10 series). It lets your friends pair their phones directly to your audio devices. Your devices will still stay connected to your own phone during the process, too. Now you can listen to the same song simultaneously.

This feature is only available on S20, Z Flip, Note10, Fold, and S10 series phones sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.

Set up Music Share

Do you have a brand-new favorite song? Use Music Share to show it your friends who are also interested in music. First, make sure you have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth turned on. Next, pair your desired audio Bluetooth device to your phone if you haven't already.

Swipe down from the top of the screen to open the Quick settings panel. Swipe left, and then tap Music Share. Tap the switch at the top of the screen. From there, adjust your desired settings, such as how long devices will stay connected once music stops playing.

When your friend wants to connect to one of your audio devices, they'll need to make sure that Music Share is also activated on their phone. They also need to have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled.

On the friend's phone, open the Quick settings panel. Touch and hold the Bluetooth icon; the phone will automatically start searching for nearby Bluetooth devices. If needed, tap Scan at the top of the screen. Shared devices will appear under Music Share. Tap your desired device. If needed, tap Allow on the other phone to give it permission to connect. Once it's connected, your friend will be able to play music on your audio device.

Stay home. Stay safe. Stay connected.
