[App] SoundWire lets you send any music (“what you hear now”) from your PC to your Android mobile devices or other PCs. Use it as:
- A wireless extension of your PC-based music system for parties
- A remote headphone amp
- A way to listen to music and movies from your computer anywhere in your house or out on your deck.
This is not just another file streaming app… you can use any music player on your PC or laptop like Grooveshark, Spotify, YouTube, or iTunes and feed the sound directly to your Android device. SoundWire lets you listen to the free versions of Grooveshark and Spotify on your phone.
SoundWire has low latency (audio delay), which means it can even be used to listen to the soundtrack of a movie or YouTube video while you watch (**Note you must adjust the buffer size in app settings for low latency). There are other uses too… SoundWire can work as a baby monitor or listening device with any Windows computer such as a netbook that has a built-in microphone. Or hook up turntables to your computer’s line input and stream a live DJ set to another part of the house. SoundWire can also be used over 3G/4G networks, depending on your download speed.
