The Samsung Separate App Sound feature allows you to play music from your smartphone from one app to a Bluetooth device, such as speaker or headphones. For example, you may want to watch the movie, but you don't want to be interrupted by a call during the time. When it is enabled, you’ll still hear system sounds from your smartphone’s speakers, such as alarms and the ringtone to alert you of an incoming call.

1 Open Settings on your device
2 Select Sound and vibration
3 Select Separate app sound
4 Enable this by clicking Turn on now
5 Now, you can choose one of the Apps listed as the player or to you can choose the application that is not listed.
6 Once the App has been selected, go to Audio Device, select the device you want to use for the App. Now you are good to go. Please make sure you choose an audio device that is different from your main audio output device.

Please Note: This function is available for certain models only due to hardware limitation, please check the settings in your phone to see whether the function is available or not.
