I have an android phone (Sony Xperia Compact Z1 / Stock) with an "eh" speaker, and a tablet (Kindle Fire 7" HD / Cyanogen) with amazing speakers. I use the phone a lot to listen to audiobooks, but at home i'd like to be able to use the tablet so i can hear the audiobooks over other noises.

I currently use Smart Audiobook Player since it seems to be the best audiobook software on the market, but it cannot synch progress between different devices, or stream audio between them on its own.

So i would like to stream all audio that is currently playing on my phone, over to my tablet and have it play via the tablet's speakers.

I suppose this should be feasible via Bluetooth or Wifi, but:

  • No Bluetooth solutions seemed to work, none of them even indicated being able to connect between the two devices.
  • No Wifi solutions seem to exist that can work with only the two android devices and the unmodified Wifi AP.

Did i overlook some piece of software that can do this?

Your question led me to this app call AmpMe (both Android an iOS) which promises to do exactly or probably, something similar to your heart desire.

AmpMe:

Sync your phone with friends to create the world's most portable sound system

With the app above, you can play sound to even multiple tablets.

    Sorry, I do not understand this or you do not understand question. Please help me. OP is looking to route any sound (read: any sound, not limited to music files), preferred is to route the sound of audiobook coming from one device into another device. In the FAQ of the app you linked, it simply says that it can sync only the music. So how exactly does this fit the question? Have you tested with the things mentioned in question (with any of two Android devices)? – Firelord Dec 19 '15 at 18:09
  • @Firelord I said, "promises to do exactly or probably something similar". I have not tested it myself. However, if playing music on one device but having it play on another device's speakers is possible with the app, then does it not fit the OPs question, even if not exactly, but closely? – Rexford Dec 19 '15 at 18:21

    Well that is something I would leave on OP to decide. Thank you for your explanation. – Firelord Dec 19 '15 at 18:23
  • Tried it and it was only able to act as an audio file/stream player which directed remote clients. It was not able to stream all audio as mentioned in my question, nor even specific programs' audio (which could be a suitable substitute.) – Mithaldu Dec 20 '15 at 21:43

    There is an opportunity to solve a problem here. I'm just baffled it hasn't been done yet, since there are already hundreds of bluetooth speakers available for purchase, and all that would be needed for this is to have an android device act as a bluetooth speaker. – Mithaldu Dec 20 '15 at 22:07
