    Who are the users?
    Many people use their phones to listen to music, watch Youtube, stream music from Google, Amazon, Spotify ... if your speakers are WiFi, you will need a third party application to be able to listen to the music on the speaker.

    What is the proposed function?
    My proposed function is the integration of a solution within OxygenOs.
    At the moment when you increase the volume, you receive on the top of volume bar "Media output" once you click on it, you get a list of the possible Media output.

    Media output should show Wifi Speakers as an output.
    Inside the settings of the Media output to include the following:

    AirPlay
    AllPlay
    DLNA/UPnP
    Fire TV
    Google Cast
    Heos
    Roku
    Samsung Multiroom
    Sonos

    Currently, there is a third party application called AirAudio which can do this but only if the phone is Rooted.

    What is the user value?
    Users can enjoy playing their music on their speaker directly from google music or any other streaming app without having to use a third party to make it possible.
    Many apps won't even give you the option of streaming from your phone to a speaker unless it is a Bluetooth speaker.

    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    At the moment there is no other company besides Apple who uses AirPlay has similar functionality. So adding something like this to OxygenOS will make it stand out compared to other operating systems.
    Since Media output and the settings gear at the bottom of the volume bar already exists. Integrating this solution with OxygenOS will be easy since it is going to use a similar approach to what is already in place.
