The canonical location for my music collection is the Android phone (synced from Mac at work), and I have a Windows PC at home connected to the speaker system. Is it possible to play the music on Android, but stream (via bluetooth, wifi or USB) the audio to these speakers (via the PC)?

Try Twonky.

Instantly stream media from your phone to devices on your home network!

It can stream not only to you PC but to other DLNA capable device and not only music but photo and other stuff.

It seems this only supports certain websites and apps? Not arbitrary audio? – endolith Jan 3 '13 at 15:09
This app doesn't appear to be available in the United States. – Michael Hampton Feb 19 '13 at 4:46

Yes, you can do this in Windows XP and 7. It will stream all audio from the phone- apps, games, etc. You do not need any additional software, just Bluetooth connectivity on the pc. AirDroid lets you access your device, including streaming music, over WiFi via web browser.

You could also just plug your phone in USB to your PC, and play the music on the pc with MusicBee or any other media player.

Try Remote Droid Player. It also requires server software, though:

This application requires a server which needs to be installed in your windows pc(which you can download from

In case you haven't found a solution yet, I would recommend an app called Soundwire

AFAIK this only goes the other way around (i.e. from PC to android). – Stefan Sep 11 '15 at 15:57
I think AllStream does this. – Mervin Sep 12 '15 at 20:08

Yes you can. No additional soft or hardware required. Android 4.4.2 and WinXP. Like this: enable BT on both devices, make sure under Windows' BT Configuration->Local Services you have 'Headset' service set to 'Automatic startup'. Connect the devices (using pass-phrase if required), check on Android that 'Media audio' is enabled for the connected PC. Play some music, enjoy!

If ur phone has 3.5mm jack, just connect your speakers pin to jack on your phone. When you play any songs on your cell phone it will just play in your speakers. Instead of connecting headphones your connecting speakers thats it. Hope it helps

This really doesn't answer the question at all. Plugging in speakers is not the same as streaming music from Android to the PC so that it can output to the speakers. – eldarerathis Jan 3 '12 at 15:20
