I'm trying to stream audio to my Windows 10 PC through my bluetooth adapter (Kensington Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter for Laptops (K33956AM)). I was able to get the device paired with Windows 10 but I can't seem to connect and do anything. When I try to select my PC from my Android phone's(Lollipop) bluetooth setting nothing happens. It says paired under my PC name. I have a Logitech bluetooth adapter hooked up my A/V system and when I select that one it connects fine.

In Windows 10 it shows my android phone in the list of devices and says paired under it but when I select my only option is to "Remove Device".

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

    Sorry for reviving an old thread, but did you make it work? Windows 10 here, also... – Newbie404 Mar 28 '17 at 19:08
  • I got it working. I was looking at the suggestion below and when looking through those settings I realized I never downloaded any software for my Bluetooth device so it was just using a generic drive. I went to Kensingtons website and downloaded the software, installed it, and rebooted. After doing that I was able to connect and play audio through my PC. – JakeIC Aug 16 '17 at 16:52

  • First you must be sure your Bluetooth adapter have "A2DP" audio streaming feature. and be sure you setup the fully drivers not only peering service. Right click on bluetooth>OptionsSettings>COM Ports and check if your streaming service installed there
  • Second you Must setup your android driver on your PC, Just connect your Phone to your PC over USB port, and wait WIN10 to finish the driver update.
  • Last thing just setup your android synx program from your phone website

Last note: you can stream your audio over WiFi too, Just connect your phone and PC to the same Router "network" and you can find a lot of apps at android store to do that, It's more simple :)

    What does fully setting up the drivers entail? – PythonNut Aug 3 '16 at 20:09

    What do COM ports have to do with A2DP? – mdonoughe Dec 31 '18 at 21:59

If you possess Asus device, you can use Asus AOLink built-in app for that.

  1. Enable DLNA (is enabled by default if you didn't change this setting)
  2. Enable Home Group
  3. Install WMPlayer in Windows 10
  4. Then you will be able to stream music like this.

This app seems to be outdated, but just in case. Just in case you have old Asus.
