Guys,

I just built my first Android device and was trying to find a way for it to stream to the AxiomAir. I found this free program (AllConnect - Play & Stream) that works great:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tuxera.streambels

When you run it, it sees all Airplay devices (AppleTV, AxiomAir, etc.) and you can directly stream music from your device to the speaker. I needed to do it this way because my main device is an iPhone, and I wanted to keep the AxiomAir on the network as-is.

So, for anyone who has both iPhone and Android, and wants to be able to stream to the AxiomAir with both, this program is very nice.

Good Luck!

This is an excellent suggestion. However, when I looked at this software some time ago it appeared that you need a rooted phone. Is this still the case?

Thanks,

Andrew

Nope. You can use it on a non-rooted phone.

Andrew/SRoode, I have an Android phone running Marshmallow. I installed Tuxera Allconnect. Upon installation, and running the app, it recognized my phone, and all DLNA devices running on my wifi (AA was shown both as itself, and as a DLNA unit). However, I am unable to either stream the audio part of a youtube clip, or play pandora on it.

How should I proceed? Thanks in advance!

I'm in same boat. Can't get any of the apps you mentioned to stream from my Android phone to my Air. Yes I can get locally stored mp3's on my phone to work, but not an app like youtube, vimeo or a radio app. But I also have Denon amps, and it I can't get the phone to stream to them either so it's not just the Air. Our iPhone works fine via appleplay, but we are moving away from Apple.
