Group Play- same song on multiple mobile to Boost sound. This concept was first introduced by Samsung Mobile with their inbuilt application Group Play, on some of their android devices and only this phones were eligible to join the group to boost sound with the app. But don’t worry Chorus, SoundSeeder and some more application are now available in play store, which have the same capability to let you Boost Sound with Group play and sync the sound with multiple android devices. This post will review one of such application i.e SoundSeeder Music Player, which uses Wifi or Hotspot Technology to connect and get the sound in sync.

SoundSeeder Music Player – Group Play- same song on multiple mobile to Boost sound.
Download and install SoundSeeder Music Player, which can be installed on mobile with android 4.1+, while if your mobile has older version of Android than you may install Sound Seeder Speaker, which cannot act as host but as a speaker for SoundSeeder Music player.
After installing, open up the application, from the device which you want to make as host and from which you want to control on music and on other devices. As you open up device for the first time, you need to fill the device name in dialogue box.
Connect the two or more phones over same network with WiFi, or create a hotspot from your main android device and connect other mobile with the open hotspot. To enable WiFi hotspot navigate to setting->Wireless and Networks->WiFi hotspot->ON it.
Once connected, open the application on all the devices and choose the music. In the New version of SoundSeeder, you may choose, any of the following option to play music i.e Network, Local, Url or Google. Once you play song from your host, it will automatically play the song on other mobile maintaining the timing. It will also show the music image in each phones in the app. You may see the example snapshot shown below. Also if you found that music is not in sync then you may press the sync icon button, which will do rest of things to make you feel like home theater.
Note: I face problem when mobiles were connected over WiFi network to get two of the devices to be in sync, while hotspot works very fine. Sound Seeder requires fast and solid WiFi connections.
