Snapcast - multi-room audio in perfect sync

Synchronize audio output across devices/players
Multi-room client-server audio player, where all clients are time synchronized
with the server to play perfectly synced audio. It's not a standalone player,
but an extension that turns your existing audio player into a Sonos-like
multi-room solution. The server's audio input is a named pipe /tmp/snapfifo. All
data that is fed into this file will be send to the connected clients. One of
the most generic ways to use Snapcast is in conjunction with the music player
daemon (MPD) or Mopidy, which can be configured to use a named pipe as audio
output.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.

      Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.
