I connected my Nexus 5 to my Windows 8 computer via bluetooth, with the hopes that I could do 2 things.

  • Use my computer to send SMS messages
  • Use me computer as a headset (with my microphone and speakers).

You can see below that I've synced my phone via bluetooth. In the properties of the phone it shows 2 services. Remote contro, and MAP SMS.

  1. How do I send SMS from my computer? (VIA Bluetooth, NOT internet services)
  2. How do I use my computer as a headset? (VIA Bluetooth, NOT internet services)

I looked in the Windows 8 app store for SMS apps, but they all seem to use internet services rather than bluetooth.

What can I do?

Simply Download SMS Center on your android phone from play store. It works as you want it. except for the calls and headset option. you can send sms and you will get notifications as well. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.smscontrolcenter&hl=en
