How can I connect my mobile phone to a computer over Bluetooth, so I can play sound using the phone's speaker?

I would like to do two things using Bluetooth:

  1. Play computer audio over the mobile phone speaker.
  2. Play computer audio using my headset.

I can rewrite the question if the mods will reopen. Essentially MUDIT wants to be able to play comptuer audio through his mobile phone's speaker, and the Bluetooth headset. The latter, at least, is actually possible. –  CarlF Jul 15 '11 at 20:25

@MUDIT, please post the exact model of telephone and headset you have. Also, do you already have Bluetooth set up on your computer, or will you need to install a Bluetooth adapter on the system? –  CarlF Jul 15 '11 at 21:08
    
What you're probably looking for is an A2DP client for your phone. Try searching for that. –  Bob Dec 31 '13 at 2:27

I do not think that most mobile phones can function as external speakers/headsets.

However, the answer to this question will let you play computer audio over your Bluetooth headset.

This software will work exactly as desired, except over wifi, rather than over bluetooth. This solution is for your phone. Hopefully using wifi is OK for your needs.

For the headset, you should just connect your headset to the computer (using bluetooth) and that's all. Choose the newly set up headset as your audio output and you're ready to go.
