Most Bluetooth party speakers can only connect to one device at a time. This is because Bluetooth is a wireless technology that operates on a single channel, which means that a single device can only be connected to one speaker at a time. However, there are some advanced Bluetooth party speakers that can support multiple simultaneous connections, but this is not a common feature.
There are a few ways to get around the limitation of a single connection. One way is to use a wired connection, such as an auxiliary (aux) cable or a USB cable, to connect multiple devices to the speaker. This allows multiple devices to be connected to the speaker simultaneously, but it also limits the mobility and convenience of using a wireless Bluetooth connection.
Another way to connect multiple devices to a single Bluetooth speaker is to use a feature called “daisy chaining”. This involves connecting multiple Bluetooth speakers together in a chain, so that the audio can be transmitted from one speaker to the next. This allows multiple devices to be connected to the same audio source, but it requires multiple Bluetooth speakers and can be complex to set up.
Finally, some newer Bluetooth technologies, such as Bluetooth 5.0 and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), support multi-point connections. This means that a single Bluetooth device can connect to multiple Bluetooth speakers simultaneously, or multiple Bluetooth devices can connect to a single speaker simultaneously. However, this feature is not yet widely available and is only supported by a limited number of devices.
In conclusion, while most Bluetooth party speakers can only connect to one device at a time, there are a few ways to get around this limitation. Using a wired connection, daisy chaining multiple speakers together, or using advanced Bluetooth technologies such as multi-point connections are all ways to connect multiple devices to a single speaker simultaneously. However, it is important to note that these methods may have limitations or require additional equipment, so it is important to carefully consider the specific needs and limitations of your setup before choosing a method for connecting multiple devices to a Bluetooth party speaker.
