why can’t one device connect to two Bluetooth devices at once? Could this be made possible in the future?


For example; one iPhone can’t connect and play music through two Bluetooth headphones at the same time.

My iPhone constantly connects to my Apple Watch and my Bluetooth headphones at the same time.

You can, but you need an app. AmpMe works for android or ios.

Samsung S8 and newer can do it natively.

I don’t have a lot of knowledge so sorry for the poor answer.
You can connect multiple devices at once, for example your headphones and smartwatch to your phone, or your phone and computer to your headphones.
The common point is that you have always a sort of master in the connection. When you have a connection with multiple devices one device has to be master and all other devices connect to this master devices and can’t connect to anything else. In the case headphones plus smartwatch is your phone the master and in the case phone plus computer is your headphone the master.
