About this app

Breakthrough DTS Play-Fi(R) technology powers simple, great-sounding whole-home wireless audio systems for smartphones and tablets. You can stream your favorite tunes over Wi-Fi right from the Play-Fi app to speakers from DTS Play-Fi product partners. It's a huge step up from Bluetooth - the audio quality and reliability are outstanding, and you can enjoy music from your phone in one room, or all your rooms.

The "Hi-Fi over Wi-Fi" listening experience is just a touch away, thanks to this handy app. Choose a speaker, choose a song, and your favorite tunes are streaming all through the house.

The app offers built-in streaming options: stream from worldwide music services such as Tidal and Deezer; use AM/FM and Internet radio, connect to DLNA servers, or play anything from your devices’ music library, including your playlists. The app automatically organizes and indexes the music for you.

The app also handles set-up for your speakers, and gives you full control of volume and speaker selection. Choose one, or stream to all of them at once.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have a Play-Fi product from Polk Audio, Definitive Technology, Wren, or Phorus, please search for and download the custom Play-Fi app for your audio brand.

Please also note that the Play-Fi app is companion software to audio products enabled with Play-Fi technology. It is not intended as a stand-alone audio player.

The most recent update is rendered the system completely unusable. Whenever I about to play Pandora through the app, after about three songs, the app "loses" connectivity. Music stops and I need to reset the app. Before I get some lame excuse about rebooting the router and diagnosing other network issues, all that has been tried. The app sucks, and this version is broken. When Play-Fi works, I love the service. However, it definitely suffers from a reliability perspective...

The frustration of this app is parallel to none. I don't even know how the net code works sometimes. Connections get dropped randomly, speakers will just disappear then reappear without any warning or pattern, and the app will crash from time to time while updating my Definitive Tech speakers. When that happens, I have to take my speakers to the office and plug the into the router and reinstall the firmware. If this app worked, it would incredible, the only app for home sound... But it doesn't..

Edit: still terrible after all these years. Stero pairs just wont work. Worst app I have ever used! Endless fiddling to get music to play. Too many screens. Lots of data dropouts and music stops. Many times it just stops and says communication lost. Updates for the last 3 years have not addressed problems. Ui is horrible. favorite internet music sources no longer supported: Format not supported.
