Do you or anyone else support Blue Tooth for listening to the radio on Samsung or any other Android phone?

David Marshall 7 years ago • updated by Angel Maclean Ulriksen 2 years ago 4

I have the Samsung Galaxy Android and I use Bluetooth.  I have a tried one app for listening to the radio but it will not play through the Bluetooth earpiece under any setting. The phone works very well with Blue Tooth.  Samsung support says that is up to the developer of the APP to provide Blue Tooth support.  Does your APP support Bluetooth?  Additionally, can I receive Canadian AM broadcasts such as CBC, etc. on your APP?  Thanks for any feed back.

Well it depends on your bluetooth device...

Most ear pieces don't support music streaming and aren't stereo.
They only support low bitrate and mono (good for voice calls) so it won't work for listening to music.
If your device does support music streaming though, you can listen to xiialive through bluetooth :)
First (you might have already done this), you have to pair your bluetooth device with your phone. 
You can do this by going to your >phone's settings >wireless & networks >bluetooth settings (the location of bluetooth settings might be a little different on your phone).
Once you have your device paired up with your phone, go to xiialive and press on >settings >advanced users >bluetooth options
If your device shows up on the list, it means you have paired it up correctly to your phone. You can tap it to get more options.
You might also have to turn on the "media controls" by going to >settings >user experience.

Also, about streaming Canadian stations such as CBC...
You can search on shoutcast.com
If you find it there, it will be in the xiialive.
If you don't find it you can try searching on vtuner.com (in your phone's browser).

Most appreciated. My Bluetooth (teeth) I have tried all three including my Jabra stereo unit that sounds awesome on my really old cell phone that plays live fm however neither of my state of the art android systems will play through them anything but cell messages and ring tones that sound superb. I am open to more ideas. Some of my friends are confused as to why I would listen to music and voice through my BT. I need handsfree access while driving and listening to the radio and answering the phone.

I was able to use my Bluetooth with my CBC app until recently. I used it all the time. Now the same Bluetooth will not connect to the blue tooth. I can listen to CBC without the Bluetooth. Why was I able and now I am not?
