Once you've set up your SoundID profile, it can be applied to the music apps to make your experience richer and more personalized sound. While many apps support the SoundID calibration, you may find that some of your music apps do not support SoundID, so we'll provide more details regarding music app support with SoundID in this article.
Why does my music app not support SoundID?
Depending on how the music app was developed, if it broadcasts the active audio session to Android OS, then SoundID can take over that broadcast and provide you with a personalized experience when using the SoundID app. Otherwise, the music apps will not show or share the audio stream and there's no way for SoundID to know if you have an active audio stream playing.
When will my music app support SoundID?
We don't select or develop music apps to become compatible with the SoundID app. If your music app is using Android EQ, the audio stream should be visible to other apps, including SoundID. The development of the music app is up to the developer of that specific app and we recommend reaching out to the music app's developers to pass along this feedback. With that said, some apps can be configured to support the SoundID calibration, see below.
How can I check if my music app supports SoundID?
Most apps that support SoundID will have the SoundID calibration applied within a few seconds once you've started playing a track - you will see the SoundID notification appear in the notification drawer.
Some applications have to be configured manually and the option often can be found in the audio output settings or equalizer settings in your music app. Once the audio stream is visible to SoundID, SoundID will apply its calibration over it. For example, take a look at how to configure Power Amp to work with SoundID: Power Amp with SoundID
We have compiled a list of apps that we have tested and that support SoundID, as well as apps that currently do not support SoundID, see below:
