How can I use Dual audio to share media on multiple devices?
You can share a video or music with a friend without having to physically share a pair of earbuds. This provides a great way to compromise between different needs using two headsets with two varied volume levels connected to a single Galaxy device.

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.
