Now to do Audio Sharing, while your Apple AirPods is still connected to your device place the other Apple AirPods case next to yours. Wait for the prompt Temporarily Share Audio to appear and follow the on-screen instructions to hold for a few seconds the button of the Apple AirPods case.

Apple AirPods in-use: If an AirPods is currently in-use and you want to share your stream audio, just tap on the Control Center by swiping from the upper right corner of the screen of your Apple Device and select the AirPlay icon. The AirPlay icon can be found in the Now Playing Shortcut in the Control Center.

As with any Apple AirPods,, there is a Share Audio button located below. Tap on that button and place both headphones next to each other. A prompt will appear on your end, tap on Share Audio tab and ask the other end to tap Join on their device.
