Samsung has built-in a new feature in the Galaxy S4. - Group Play.
Thus, several smart phones can be connected simultaneously.
New innovative games and other applications can be realized thereby.

Is it possible to use this interface with b4a (Group Play, Samsung Chord)?

The Samsung Chord is a brilliant and fun way to share content and user events in real-time between devices. The Samsung Chord (Chord) SDK allows application developers to develop local information-sharing applications without a detailed knowledge of networking.
Chord enables simple real-time sharing without the cloud!

  • Easy discovery and connection with nearby devices
  • Real-time experiences between multiple devices
  • Fast peer-to-peer connection, without the need of a server
  • Decentralized networks where peers can come and go at any time
Chord quickly connects nearby devices so you can create shared, real-time experiences like collaborative interaction, multi-player games and media sharing. Without using the cloud or server, it instantly supports sharing 1-to-1, 1-to-many or many-to-many.

Devices running Chord-based applications discover each other using a UDP broadcast based discovery, and then use a TCP-based protocol stack to create a reliable, peer-to-peer local communication network. This network can be used to share data, including text, binary messages and files, with selected members of the network.

Chord SDK helps you create a group with multi-devices in real-time, automatically, requiring no manual processing of devices which join or leave the group.
