Private Listening

This is one of my favorite features of the SmartThings app, it allows you to route the audio of the TV through the smartphone. It can come in handy when you want to watch late-night TV without waking up your significant other. You can simply plug in a pair of headphones to your smartphone and turn on this feature from the SmartThings app. Alternatively, you can also use it as Chromecast audio. For instance, if you have guests over or you’re having a party then you can also broadcast the audio from smartphone to the TV or the music system connected to the TV with the SmartThings app.
