In Android 10 we are now able to select which output we want to use for playing back audio.

  • Is there any documentation about how to add devices to this list (can apps perhaps register themselves to stream audio over a network etc.), or is it literally only bluetooth and the device itself?

  • What determines if a bluetooth device shows up? On my phone, both my bluetooth headphones and my not-very-smart smartwatch show up (despite the latter literally not having any speakers or anything), however my raspberry pi which I've configured as a bluetooth sink does not show up. If I connect to it, the phone just thinks I am playing back via "Phone speaker" (however the media volume icon changes from a music note to a music note with a bluetooth icon on it).
