  1. Bluetooth audio stuttering after latest update


    I installed the latest Windows 10 update but now my bluetooth audio devices are stuttering when they play any sound.

    I tried this with two different devices - a SONOS Move speaker, and the Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds, both have the same issues. Tried doing all the classic troubleshooting that I could find on google - driver reinstalls and updates, audio enhancement fiddling etc. etc. but nothing seems to have worked. I rolled back the update and this fixed it but Windows keeps prompting me every 30-60 mins to install and restart to update Windows.



    Any suggestions?

    As per the bot comment suggestion: Feature update to Windows 10, version 2004

    Bluetooth Audio stuttering

    Recently upgraded my PC and reinstalled Windows 10.

    I run my main audio through a Razer Leviathan bluetooth speaker and a headset through the optical connector for comms.

    Never had any issues until recently, where any audio stutters when coming through the Bluetooth speaker. There's no stutter through the headset for any audio (comms, music, youtube, netflix etc) and there's no stutter if I connect the speaker to another
    device such as my phone and hold it at the other side of the house. I recently bought a USB Bluetooth adapter in case it was something faulty on my new motherboard, but the issue persists with this device too.

    I've tried reinstalling the drivers and reconnecting for Bluetooth and the speaker, but the problem persists. If I move the speaker, sometimes the signal cuts out entirely or it can be fine, but it has not been moved from the same spot on my desk prior to
    the issue occurring so it's not an issue of the location of the speaker. There's no WiFi (cabled and disabled the WiFi option) and just a desk surface for the signal to pass through. Again, it could connect to my phone on the other side of the house and play
    audio fine.

    I'm thinking its a software/driver problem at this point.

    Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Bluetooth Audio stuttering

    Hi Fenrisian,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing Bluetooth Audio stuttering issue on Windows 10. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, we would need
    some information.



    1. May I know the make and the model of the computer?
    2. What is the version and build of you operating system? In the
      Search box, type winver
      to get this info.


    I suggest you to refer the ‘Audio’ section from Fix Bluetooth
    problems in Windows 10
    article and check if it fixes the issue.



    Registry Disclaimer:

    The registry is a database in Windows that contains important information about system hardware, installed programs and settings, and profiles of each of the user accounts on the computer. Windows often reads and updates the information
    in the registry.

    Normally, software programs make registry changes automatically. You should not make unnecessary changes to the registry. Changing registry files incorrectly can cause Windows to stop working or make Windows report the wrong information



    I look forward to your reply



    Thanks,

    Lumia 930 Denim update - Bluetooth music stutter

    Having had a battle with stuttering sound tonight here you have my conclusions using Nokia 920:

    • Stuttering only occured when playing music with Bluetooth connection
    • NO stuttering playing music via phone's speakers (i.e Bluetooth OFF)
    • This should prove that: Music being played isn't corrupted in any way (Ripped my own cd's for testing this)
    • This is MAYBE a Bluetooth only-issue (but my tests indicate other...)

    To make things more complicated, here's my (short) story:

    I earlier had a small BT-speaker that worked flawlessly with my Nokia 920. Never had any stuttering at all.

    Then I bought a new BT-speaker...

    It could be that the new patch arrived (and got installed) before I bought the new speaker, and that's the reason why the stuttering is appearing.

    But now I'm getting the stuttering but I have ruled out some more conditions for when the stutterings occurs. Some of them seems to contradict others in this post - but this is what's happening to me!

    This is what's happening with Bluetooth connected and wifi turned off :

    • Streaming audio from my NAS to the phone = No stuttering at all
    • Streaming audio from Swedish public radio(I.E. random website) = No stuttering at all
    So my conclusion is that BT COULD be working as intended (at least for me) but I get the stuttering ONLY when I play stuff stored on the phone
