  1. Bluetooth is connected but doesn't play audio


    I use my computer in my car for work. I have previously been able to use the Ford SYNC Bluetooth to Windows Bluetooth connection to play audio from my computer to the car stereo. I was issued a new vehicle and attempted to connect to the new Bluetooth. The connection works, but Windows doesn't recognize the car stereo as an output device. I connected my AirPods to see if another connection works, and those work fine. The image uploader isn't working here, so here is a link to the screenshots https://imgur.com/a/5OWkFYs

  2. bluetooth headphones connecting as microphone but not audio

    After a driver updated my bluetooth devices connect as voice but not as audio I have tried to:

    • Connect it manually in the sound managment (nothing happen, it doesn´t connect)
    • Uninstall and install drivers (nothing happen)
    • Return to the previous version (nothing happen)
    • Trobleshooting (it can´t start because it is not connected as an audio device)
    • Updated to windows 11 (the problem is still there)

    Bluetooth is connected but doesn't play audio

    Can't select paired bluetooth speaker as sound output (Windows 10)

    I just got a new bluetooth speaker, an Urbanears Stammen (concrete grey)

    I can connect to it from my phone, using Bluetooth, and play back sound no problem. But I can't get my Windows 10 laptop (Dell XPS 15) to use it as a playback device.

    I can connect and pair to it no problem, as you see in the screenshot below

    It also shows up under bluetooth in the device manager. It's not listed under "Audio inputs and outputs", which I thought it should be, but I can see it under "Sound, video and game controllers".
