Hi there! I’m excited to show my first Android app. I released it a few weeks ago. It’s called Weezzler and it lets you play your phone’s music in any browser over a wifi connection. I actually started developing it as an experiment and for personal use and ended up publishing it on Google Play. I tried to make it as simple as possible to use, but I’m still working on some new functionalities and improvements. Most of us today have a computer at home connected to speakers and a wifi connection and that’s all you need to use it. I find it really useful every time you go to a friend’s house and you want to play your own music on speakers without the need of extra hardware and use the phone as a remote control. Or even when you are at work, if you work in front of a computer, you can forget about your phone and navigate through your music using the browser. Hope anyone else feels the same about it, any kind of comment is welcomed!

Super cool idea. I've bought bluetooth speakers a while back, and surprised myself starting using my mobile a lot to play music. It plays well with watch control and make it easy to just switch to headphone and go out (spotify device control is quite good, but won't always work). I like how this app allows for the same thing without having to choose between desktop sound and mobile sound on speakers. I take it it uses local network from router for wifi routing?

@oelmekki Thanks Olivier, I really appreciate you like it! Basically the phone acts as an audio file server and uses the local network to send the files to the browser through TCP/IP sockets. Then the communication between phone/browser is done over web sockets. Thanks again!

@atamagno Oh, just tried it, it's not exactly what I thought it was actually: it streams files, not sound. Do you think there's any chance (if that's the kind of product you want to make) to take the web app as an audio output for the mobile device?

@oelmekki Not sure if I understand what you mean with "take the web app as an audio output", but feel free to ask me anything or give me a more detailed explanation about this.

@atamagno Ahah sorry ;) What I have in mind is the way some audio device can take control of android sound, like how connecting to a bluetooth speaker disables internal speakers and route all sounds to third party device, on android. If an app can do the same, this would allow Weezzler users to have more music sources: if an user plays music with spotify or google music, there are no music files on the mobile, for say. They could even play sound from youtube app, if they feel like it. This also would allow to use controls from the playing mobile app, and you wouldn't have to implement in your web app all the controls you usually find on players, leveraging the ones already built on mobile apps. Basically, this would mean for your app to act as a speaker, receive raw sound, and route it to web app, which would play it as a stream.

@atamagno I think that's the related API ? https://developer.android.com/gu... Sorry, I'm not an android dev :)
