5 Best Free Android UPnP Clients

5 Best Free Android UPnP Clients

UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play. It is a set of computer network protocols which enables devices on a home network to be aware of each other and access selected services. This collection of protocols with the appropriate software offers a very easy method of sharing media on your network as it features automatic discovery and supports zero-configuration.

There are many devices that run UPnP audio visual servers. For example, a wide range of software exists for the Linux, Windows, and OS X operating systems that turn computers into media servers. Many NAS devices also have built-in UPnP media servers. We even see UPnP turning up in routers, audiophile hard disk players, and HD media players.

In this article, we feature the best free UPnP clients that are available for the Android platform. These clients enable users to stream multimedia from a UPnP enabled media server, or control a UPnP enabled media renderer from their Android phone or tablet.

There are a few UPnP clients which would have worthy of inclusion in this article but their free version has too many limitations. In the case of AndroMote, the playlist is limited to a mere 4 items.

To provide an insight into the quality of software that is available, we have compiled a list of 5 free Android UPnP clients. Hopefully, there will be something here that will meet the requirements of anyone looking to stream media to their Android device.

Now, let's explore the 5 UPnP clients at hand. For each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description with an in-depth analysis of its features, screenshots of the software in action, together with links to relevant resources and reviews. We give our highest recommendation to 2Player Network Music Player and UPnPlay.

UPnP Clients
2Player Full-featured network music player
UPnPlay Simple UPnP media player and controller
BubbleUPnP Feature-laden UPnP/DLNA control point and an UPnP media renderer
Skifta Billed as a different way of controlling your collection of music, videos, and photos
