Hi guys..I have a small problem and unfortunately the microsoft couldn't provide me a solution for this...

Since i upgraded to win 10 i could not play music from my phone through laptop speakers via bluetooth. I could send and receive files to and fro via bluetooth and the phone also gets connected/paired without any issues, but the music playing option is not happening.  My previous OS win 7 had no problems in playing the music.I have a dell inspiron 15R laptop and asus zenfone 4 mobile.My phone specs shows it supports A2DP ( and it used to play in win 7).

Pls someone could provide me a solution or a fix for this..??

hello pranav...thanks for the response...

I checked the first link but they said that we should download the Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1

but it is only compatible for windows vista there is no version for win 10..and some procedures are not available like step5 are entirely different(its not available as they have shown)...

 

the second link..i checked as it is said .."bluetooth>OptionsSettings>COM Ports and check if your streaming service installed there"--but the COM Ports section was completely blank .. dont know much about that!!

i have like 3 names related to bluetooth in my laptop..intel wireless bluetooth,microsoft bluetooth enumerator & microsoft bluetooth  LE enumerator...does it have any role in this case??

Ok, thanks for your reply.

 

First make sure your device is connected to your laptop via Bluetooth. After that go to Control Panel and type in the search bar in the right top corner Sound. Next you should see Sound in the search results, underneath it click Manage audio devices. A window should pop up once you clicked it, Make sure your laptop speakers are the current sound source. To do that check if there is a tick next to it, if not press on the speakers and the will be highlighted in blue then click the Set default button at the bottom of the window. When you have done that check to see if the sound is coming out the speakers. If not tell me.

 

Thanks Aramus   :thumbup2:

If that doesn't work try downloading Asus Smart Gesture: https://www.asus.com/support/faq/1007490. If you get stuck use this video to help you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_aDaN_qCkE. I am sure you can connect to the speakers via Smart Gesture.

hi aramus!!!

 

i tried your first post ...but its all fine . My laptop speakers were the current source and it was ticked.

 

I downloaded the asus smart gesture ( great app though!!) but it just acts like a remote for the laptop...i could not play the music from my phone playlist through the laptop speakers. :mellow: ..I could only select songs from the laptop list and play only that just like a remote...

 

Is there a way to play music from my phone through the laptop speakers?? :guitar:

Sorry, but I'm out of ideas. But one last thing, make sure your phone is compatible with your current version of bluetooth on your laptop. Presumably you have Bluetooth 4.0, 4.1 or 4.2.

 

Thanks Aramus   :thumbup2:

No, they don't have anything to do with Bluetooth for the moment. In a search bar in Windows 10 type 'Device Manager' and click on it. Next click Bluetooth in the list and then press the arrow facing down and a list should appear beneath it. The top one of the list that you just opened should have these words: Wireless Bluetooth High Speed adapter. On that driver name, it will have a decimal number for example 3.0 or 4.0. That number is your current version of Bluetooth. Sorry that it is hard to understand but I had trouble putting it into words.

 

Thanks Aramus  :thumbup2:
