How do I output my android 8 phone's audio to my windows 10 pc? sndcpy only works for android 10 and above and usbaudio (https://github.com/rom1v/usbaudio) only works for android 7 and below. 'Bluetooth audio receiver' on the windows store only works for Windows 10 version 2004, and I can't update to that version (update settings image). I want to output my whatsapp calls audio to my laptop for example. Also, preferably not with aux cable. Does anyone know a way I could do this?

    Why exactly can't you upgrade to the current and supported version of Windows 10?

  • Do you mean using your computer as a speaker for your phone, or save audio as a file on the computer? Feb 9, 2021 at 5:15

I do this by connecting an auxiliary cable between my computer and phone and making Windows think the phone is a microphone.

If you have a newer laptop, you can plug an auxiliary cable into the headphone jack on the computer and phone. Then configure the jack as "Mic in" in the control panel.

If you have an older laptop or desktop, you can simply plug the auxiliary cable into the microphone jack on the computer and the headphone jack on your phone (assuming your phone has one).

  • Thanks for your answer. I have a newer laptop, but the aux cable i have has only 3 bands (no mic band).

  • Ok, it should still be able to work. If you go to Control Panel, then Hardware and Sound, do you see Realtek Audio (assuming you have a Realtek driver)?

  • Perfect! Click it then double click the black circle on the left column of the window that comes up. You should see a menu that has checkboxes saying something like "Line in", "Mic in", "Headphones", etc. Check the box that says "Mic in" and click ok. NOTE: to use your headphone jack in the future, you will have to follow these steps and change it back to "Headphones".

  • Clicking on it takes me to "Realtek HD Audio Manager" in the speakers tab there is one black circle on the right which says "Headset (Speakers)" when hovered over. How do I send you an image in comments?
