  1. Bluetooth speaker only plays music, no other sounds


    I want to play all the laptop sounds through my bluetooth speaker - alerts, Cubase mixes, BBC Sounds, Youtube, everything.

    My Bluetooth speaker only connects "Connected Music" and will ONLY play audio from the MediaPlayer or iTunes or Quicktime. Nothing else.

    How can I change the connection so the bluetooth speaker plays all my laptop sounds?

    I'm using a Dell Inspiron 15 Ultrabook

    Windows 10 latest update.

    This situation is true for all the bluetooth speakers I have tried.

    :)

    How to play audio/music through speakers AND bluetooth speakers


    I have a pair of Creative T40 speakers plugged into the 3.5mm jack on my laptop. I got hold of a bluetooth speaker and that was recognised straight-away.

    I have installed a large monitor (32inch) to the laptop on which I work as well as watch movies and play games. I was wondering if I could setup that audio, be it music, gaming audio or movie audio could be played through BOTH sets of speakers.

    The main T40's are on either side of the monitor and I have the bluetooth speaker behind me on a shelf. That would, kind-of, give me surround sound. Or when I have people over I could get better sound if I could just move the bluetooth speaker to a different part of the room.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    Thank you.

    Lumia 950 Bluetooth With Nokia Play Bluetooth Speaker No Sound

    When I pair my Lumia 950 via Bluetooth to with a Nokia Play Speaker, it states that it is "Connected Music". However, when I play music from Groove, I can see the song is playing but no sound at all. I've tried the following in hopes to remedy the problem
    but same result:

    • Unpair and pair again
      • Manual pair
      • NFC pair
    • Ensure no 3.5mm jack is connected to the speaker
    I'm guessing this is due to a Bluetooth stack issue. Will Microsoft update the stack in future updates?

    Note that on my Lumia 920 Windows 10 Preview, I'm able to hear sound just fine.

    Thanks

    Bluetooth speaker not playing

    Hello Tanya,

    Your Bluetooth speaker might be paired with your PC but not connected. You can try the following steps to manually connect it:

    • Make sure your Bluetooth speaker is turned on.
    • On the far right of the Windows taskbar, press and hold (right-click)
      Volume
      , and then select Playback devices.
    • On the Playback tab, select the Bluetooth speaker, press and hold (or right-click) it, and then select
      Connect.
    • Select your Bluetooth speaker, and then select Set default. Music should play on your Bluetooth speaker now.

    Let us know if performing the steps makes any difference.
