Android Install

Download APK, Android 7+ required [NEW: v1.2.4.1, Feb 19th 2024)

As BubbleUPnP Server is meant to run continuously, an Android device always plugged to power is necessary in most uses cases.

Prefer running BubbleUPnP Server on a desktop computer or NAS whenever possible.

BubbleUPnP Server on Android has all the features of the PC/NAS version. Since v1.2.4.1 it supports GPU accelerated transcoding for Chromecast (requires Android BubbleUPnP 4.3.4+).

The APK is a launcher for the BubbleUPnP Server core whose latest version will be downloaded on first run.

As BubbleUPnP Server on Android is not distributed through Google Play, it will send a notification whenever a new updated APK is available. However, the BubbleUPnP Server core updates itself automatically by default, like the PC/NAS version.

IMPORTANT: if running BubbleUPnP Server for Android, make sure to stop any other BubbleUPnP Server instance on your network.
