Android - Can an Android phone be used as a Bluetooth headset/speakers?
As of right now the bluetooth API only supports pairing with the android device as the master. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4474697/use-android-device-as-a-headset-for-another-device
Here's a XDA article by Mishaal Rahman that basically says:
Even without A2DP profile on Android (which is not implemented even in Android 8 yet), you can do a low-quality Bluetooth streaming via Hands-free Profile (HFP) to Android from another Android phone (sorry iPhone owners!)
Install Tasker and a AutoVoice plugin on the source phone, and create the following Tasker profile:
Profile: Reroute Audio (192) State: BT Connected [ Name:BMW 15384 Address:* ] Enter: Anon (199) A1: AutoVoice Ctrl BT [ Configuration:Enabling Headset Sound Timeout (Seconds):0 ] Exit: Anon (204) A1: AutoVoice Ctrl BT [ Configuration:Disabling Headset Sound Timeout (Seconds):0 ]
Warning: I have not tested this myself.
Warning: quotation about HFP audio quality:
Note: because the Hands-Free Profile is not meant to send high-fidelity audio streams, the audio quality of your music will suffer. This is just the nature of the Hands-Free Profile and there’s nothing you can do about it without either upgrading your stereo’s Bluetooth to bring A2DP support or to stream through another peripheral.
