Oh, I thought it already can do that. My mistake.
It would let you plug any Android phone into the USB port of any USB audio compliant DAC, car stereo, receiver, etc. and play audio over the speakers while charging the device without need for an AUX jack and cable.
Does USB power go both ways? Cause in this case, shouldn't the Android device be powering the DAC/speakers?
I think iPads can power USB speakers and headphones.

I think we should just ignore the second half of this post because I'd still really like to see this enabled by default on all Android devices in the next release. I've gone and starred that task, and encourage anyone else who'd be interested in using Android (or rockbox on android ) as a media platform to do the same. Its a really useful feature and its silly that Google overlooked this in Android 4.0. It should be available to everyone, not just people who feel like hacking the linux kernel on Android.
What I'd like to know:Is it necessary for the phone to support USB host to achieve this?AFAIK USB_CLASS_AUDIO as source is possible with both host and device configurations.Does anyone know how common USB DAC's behave in this respect?The request remains rather unspecific in terms of technical details.

Firstly, I want to gather a maximum of votes to request Google and therefore Android device manufacturers to support and enable USB audio.
Anyway, I am willing to remove the second part of my first post.How can I remove it?
