Play Music on Multiple Android Devices with Chorus

The Samsung Group Play app is pretty sweet in theory. The ability to play your songs on various devices at the same time can be a great social feature, as well as a less awkward alternative to struggling to hear a song your friends ‘must absolutely listen to,’ as it plays from your phone’s pitiful speaker. If this sounds like something you want to try on your unsupported device, you may want to check out Chorus.

Developed by XDA Forum Member rahuliyer95, Chorus brings the music sharing functionality of Group Play over to all devices running Android version 2.3 and newer. It operates in a similar fashion, relying on a WiFi network (or hotspot) to share songs playing on the host device to others on the same network. The host device creates and names a so-called ‘room’ on the network, to which other devices then must connect to by entering the code generated on the host’s screen.

Additionally, rahuliyer95 provides a clear and brief introductory tutorial at the Chorus’ first launch to help get you know your way around the app’s functions and setup process. There’s also a Holo-themed, in-app music player where you can create, edit, and save your own playlists easily.

Rahuliyer95 has developed a well-polished app that can be regarded as a great alternative to those who own not only Samsung devices running an older version of Android, but non-Samsung devices in general. It’s free and ad-free, and can be downloaded from the original forum post. If you would like to learn more, visit the application thread for more information.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5. To recap, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was criticized heavily for feeling more like a toy, rather than a premium flagship...
