Before you try the recommendations below, be sure to check if your device's software and related apps are updated to the latest version. Please review the following steps for how to update your mobile device's software.  

Step 1. Go to Settings > Software update.

What is Dual audio?


Dual audio allows you to send your media audio to two different Bluetooth devices at once. This means that not only can you use two pairs of headphones at one time, but you can share between two different sets of Bluetooth speakers as well. After you pair both Bluetooth devices to your Samsung Galaxy phone, you just need to access your Media panel on your Quick panel.
