The upcoming Android 15 update from Google brings a music-sharing feature through “Auracast” and Bluetooth LE audio standards.

You might want to share music, movies, or playlists with family or friends during trips or travels. However, the current Bluetooth technology hinders the streaming process to more than one device at a time, as music is streamed to one device at a time.

The “Bluetooth LE Audio” standards with the “Auracast” feature in the Android 15 update provide support for streaming music to multiple devices simultaneously. Auracast feature allows streaming music or movies to nearby devices via low-energy Bluetooth technology.

The functionality of the new feature differs from traditional Bluetooth technology. The Auracast feature does not require pairing between the source and receiving devices initially. The user’s phone acts as a broadcasting radio for streaming audio, while other devices smoothly capture this audio.

The “Auracast” technology is expected to support audio streaming to nearby devices. The report outlined the functionality of the feature in the Android 15 operating system, where the user opens settings, accesses connected devices, selects the connection preferences tab, and then starts sharing audio.

The report illustrates the possibility of setting a username and password to specify which devices are allowed to join the streaming smoothly.
