“Play media to” sound option to change audio output destination

This post is an attempt to rectify what I believe is a lack of information about this feature in Android Pie. I’ve been unable to find any documentation from Google or any other source about how to easily change the audio output destination when more than one is available. The Play media to option appears in the Sound section of the Settings app when more than one device is available. A device includes the speakers of the Android phone itself. Upon selecting Play media to a modal appears allowing you to select the audio output destination device. I find that the easiest way to access this control in Android Pie on my Google Pixel 3 is to press one of the physical volume controls, then select the settings icon. It will take you directly to the Sound section of the Settings app. submitted by /u/thecodygriffin [link] [comments]
