Wow that was a good information. I was planning to buy a wireless connector for my speaker. But that was awesome idea. I never thought there is app in store for that function.

So an Internet connection is needed for this? I don't know about you guys, but I don't like giving a website that kind of permission.
I prefer using Soundwire app, it does the the thing by connecting Android phone with PC through WiFi.

Hey, that's actually a nice thing to do. Especially for guys like me, who use the computer more often than their smartphones. It's that I have a speaker for my computer, otherwise I would totally do it. I'll just keep this thread close, in case the speaker dies on me, and I need a new one (or a now cheap and easy replacement).
