Smartphones today are capable of being connected to one or more devices via wireless communication technologies, such as Bluetooth®. While a smartphone is connected (or "paired") with a device, an audio-distribution profile of the smartphone governs routing of audio to and from mechanisms (e.g., speakers, microphones) of either the smartphone or a device to which the smartphone is paired.
