How to use cell phone as a monitor speaker?

Hi everyone!

I'm doing some mixing that targets cell phone speaker as playback device (for some reason), so I want to use a real cell phone as monitor speaker during mixing. However, If I connect a cell phone and my sound card with a 3.5 mm line, it always expects you are using a earphone and mutes the speaker. So how can I have a cell phone's speaker connected to my sound card?

You may need to make a mix or two and download it to the phone.... Listen, make adjustments on the computer, download again....

I put files in my google drive, then launch them on my phone.

Me too. No different than taking a quick bounce out to the car for a listen.

Or you can just buy a cell phone speaker and mount it in a small enclosure with power.... now that I think about it, with the number of producers who are purposefully "mixing for cell phone", a device like that might sell quite well, not that I condone that behavior!

There are several audio interfaces that are designed for cellphones. One of those maybe? Most of them I think are predominantly geared for apple products though. I know some motu gear is iOS compatible.
