Is it possible to stream my desktop PC's audio to my Lumia 930 via WiFi, like a WiFi Headphone or something?

It seems to me that there is no built-in service or (good) app currently out there!


Unfortunately it's currently not possible to use your phone as a simple playing device using wifi or Bluetooth.

Here are a two things you can try:

Stream files from your PC to your phone: This can be done for example using one of the DLNA / UPNP players (e.g. Smart Player) in the store. Or even complete streaming solutions like Plex.

Or use one of the great VLC remote apps which can output the audio on your phone (e.g. VLC Mobile Remote:Video & Music).

I realize this is not as comfortable as it could be so you should consider voting for this feature on the Windows Phone UserVoice site.

  • Perhaps you could add links to some of the apps you mentioned?
