What is AmpMe ?

AmpMe is the #1 portable sound system that connects you to friends, family, strangers (and even aliens)! We allow users to amplify the sound of their music by connecting several devices (both iOS and Android) to play the same music at the same time. Essentially, we allow phones to become a portable speaker system - like sonos! AmpMe also allows users to customize their profiles, follow other users, host and join virtual parties, join Global Parties, chat in the parties, react to the music and (best of all!) make new friends in the app.

With AmpMe you can party anywhere, anytime with anyone!!

Does AmpMe use data?

In the same way other music streaming services function, AmpMe uses regular data plans to start a party, unless you’re connected to a local WiFi.

We do, however, offer an Offline Mode. To see how to turn on Offline Mode see the section 'Party Features and How to Use Them'.

Can I still receive phone calls while I use AmpMe?

Yes. Don’t worry; you’ll still receive all of your phone calls while you use AmpMe, however the music will stop on your phone so that you can chat it up. Meanwhile, the other phones will continue to play music so that the party can go on without you.

How many people can join the party?

Hotspot parties: 5-8 guests
Wifi: Dependent on what your router can support

Otherwise, the sky’s the limit!

Who controls the music?

The music is controlled by the person who creates the party - the party host - also known as the DJ.

The DJ can add music to the party queue (or playlist), and queue special requests made by guests in the chat. If the host decides to turn on 'Guest as DJ', other users will be able to add music to the party queue.

To see how to turn on Guest as DJ see the section 'Party Features and How to Use Them'.

Can I use AmpMe without an Internet connection?

For the complete experience, AmpMe requires an internet connection from your data plan or a nearby WiFi network in order to stream a music party. However, AmpMe also works in offline mode. You and your friends could be on a local LAN or hotspot without internet and it would work with your local library.

To see how to turn on Offline Mode see the section 'Party Features and How to Use Them'.

How do I sync music if the app is not doing it properly?

To improve the sync, have guests manually sync their phone to the host’s. To do this: Go to party settings (gear icon at the top right hand side) and have guests change the "manual offset" themselves. This feature allows guests to manually sync the music to be playing at the right time.

How do you connect to Bluetooth speakers?

You are able sync one phone to one Bluetooth speaker, however, using AmpMe you can sync up several speakers by connecting each speaker to a separate phone. This will allow several bluetooth speakers from different brands to sync up, creating a portable sonos!

To connect AmpMe to a bluetooth speaker, you must connect your phone to a speaker before entering the AmpMe app. After that, you can launch AmpMe and your music will play from a speaker!

Can AmpMe connect more than one bluetooth speaker to one phone?

No, one phone can only be connected to one bluetooth speaker. This is because AmpMe uses Bluetooth 4.1 and 4.2, which only allows for one-to-one pairing. We do not support Bluetooth 5.0 yet!

Who in the party should connect to Bluetooth speakers?

The best way to achieve perfect synchronization is by having the guests connect to bluetooth speakers. The sync works best when the host device is not connected to bluetooth speakers.

What music sources are available?

Your personal music library on your phone, YouTube, SoundCloud and Spotify.

Can’t play YouTube when I leave the App?

iOS users: No, YouTube cannot be played in the background when you leave the app. This is a restriction put in place by YouTube, not AmpMe!

Android users: Yes, but only if you give us the permission to play the video in a floating mini player.

Why do I need a premium Spotify account?

You need to have a premium Spotify account because of the access that AmpMe has to Spotify.

Speaker Mode?

If you are nearby the host, we have a specific mode called “Speaker Mode”. In this mode, you just need to be near the host (approximately 10 meters) and in this case, your phone will act as a speaker mode. Only the host required to be logged in his Spotify Premium account.

This mode is available for Spotify and SoundCloud.
