Great app as always! 'm even noticing much better latency and smaller buffeer size. Thanks!


I don’t see this update on the play store. It’s still as 0.12.1. Maybe because I’m on the beta channel.

Sorry, it’s not available on the Play Store yet. There are some things to iron out first.
You can manually install the version from this post though.

I just installed this 0.22 version on my Windows 10 computer, and while using USB tethering with my Android device I cannot get the Android device as a server to work with my computer.
I get the following error from the log file:
com.azefsw.audioconnect.desktop.a.f.c: Failed to load C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay\opus.dll
then a few lines of stack trace down…
Caused by: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay\opus.dll: Can’t load IA 32-bit .dll on a AMD 64-bit platform

You can resolve that by deleting the C:\Program Files (x86)\AudioRelay folder and reinstalling the app.

The new installer should have deleted all the dll files present in this folder.

You went from the 0.12 (from the website) version directly to 0.22, right?

Made an update, the links now point to 0.22.1

@audiorelayapp Would like to ask if it is already available to MacOS computers/laptops because I don’t see any download links for it. Thanks!

Check here!

Thank you so much for your help!

First, I would like to say that I use AudioRelay almost every day and I really like it.
One suggestion is to update the app and website (home page) to this new version.

  1. Excellent app, solves an age old issue for me. Actually solves multiples of them.

  2. When I use mic mode, at least with a Linux host, the voice is always crackly on the receiving end. I’ll test on windows soon. Any possible fixes for this?

Thanks for testing!

To help pinpoint the issue, could you please try while connected via USB tethering? That way, we’ll know if it’s due to more than “just” the network.

Have you got around to test on Windows?

I don’t think it’ll help this particular issue but you could also try the new version here

Haven’t had the chance to try windows but I’ll try usb tether and then update and see if that changes anything.

Update @Asapha: it works flawlessly when tethering. My original setup was

  • laptop on 5ghz wifi
  • phone on same 5ghz wifi

I’ve since upgraded laptop to be on ethernet but I still get pops and crackles if not thethering via usb implying the issue is either with my router or my phone’s connection to the router. A bit perplexed by this as I use the same setup for in home streaming with nvidia gamestream. What other ways can I diagnose where the issue might be?

It’s possible that GameStream deals better with the occasional late or lost packets.

Some questions to help paint a picture:

What would you say is the frequency of the audio issues? Every 5, 30, 60 seconds?
What are the stats like? (Does the latency sometimes goes up above 20ms?)
Could you confirm that you have issues in both directions? (Android → PC and PC → Android)
If you select the high buffer option on Android, and do a PC to Android stream, do you still hear pops? With 2 seconds of buffer, the audio should be perfect.
