  1. Issues with Bluetooth functionality on Windows 10


    I recently purchased a Bluetooth headset to clear up come of the cables/ports to my PC. I've run into quite a few problems with the way Bluetooth functions on Windows 10.


    Up until this point, I've been able to find answers to all my questions. I have a problem when I pause a youtube video, receive a call on Discord, or use dedicated music or audio application Spotify. As soon as the audio is finished song ends, discord call finishes ringing, or is picked up or is paused, all other audio stops transmitting to my Bluetooth BT device. The mixer shows that it is still picking up sound on the correct playback option too and that I should still be able to hear it. Resuming video/music allows for the other application and system sounds to continue.


    At first, I thought this was an issue with my specific headset. Switched out to a different BT device and still had this problem. The next thing I thought of was maybe it's a driver issue. I researched the latest BT and Realtek Drivers for my motherboard and I did have an update, but the issue remains.


    It still could very well be a driver issue, but perhaps a different one I haven't thought of yet. Another possibility is that there may be different audio drivers interfering with each other, but I don't have any proof of that. I tried disabling all the other playback devices on my computer that aren't the BT Stereo output. Still nothing.


    I've found multiple Microsoft forums about this same exact issue but every thread I've seen is locked with no definitive solution. Interestingly enough, people found some solutions for specific applications, such as Disabling Media Sessions Service in chrome://flags. This action solves the problem where all audio goes silent when a youtube video is paused or ends.



    Am I missing a driver? Are there some settings in the property that has to be changed? Does it have to do with the way Windows 10 separates sounds between Hands-Free AG Audio and BT Stereo? It is worth noting that I've tried disabling the Hands- Free AG Audio devices, but this makes no change.


    I've seen some people have issues with Hands-Free AG Audio when using the microphone of a BT Headset, but I use a dedicated condenser microphone instead, although I do have a microphone on my headset.



    Since solutions exist for specific apps regarding this issue, doesn't that signify a change can be made somewhere on the system itself to prevent the issue altogether?


    The main problem I'm having is that whenever my friends call me on Discord, I answer the call, and then all of my computer audio goes silent, including the call itself. The only way I can fix it is by restarting my headset.

    :)

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    My computer specs are as listed in the profile. I think all of you guys are correct. I don't have built-in Bluetooth in mobo.

    I contacted skull candy headphones and thy have told me if I do not have built-in Bluetooth, I would need a dongle which supports at least a2dp. I do not know what the heck that means. I have a feeling I would need more than a cheap dongle.

    Anyone suggest some a2dp adapters. I searched but don't know what a2dp is so couldn't make a decision

    Bluetooth in windows 10

    So I bought a new Bluetooth headphones the skull candy uproar since my old one isn't working. It came with only the headset and usb charging cable. The problem is I can't seem to pair it to my pc. I have windows 10 by the way. There is no Bluetooth on off button in windows settings. I went to device manager but there us no icon for Bluetooth. I did everything I knew but none of it worked.I can post pictures if anyone needs.An alternative might be a Bluetooth dongle but I m not sure I'd it would work plus I paid $50 so don't wanna spend more

    I looked up on Internet and many people seem to have issues with windows 10 and Bluetooth. I thought of asking here knowing my UK friends are smart.

    Anyone have any idea of how to get Bluetooth to work on my pc.

    PS don't curse windows 10. I already know it's a mess and not a very good os.

    • Support A2DP for Wireless Stereo Music Playback
    Edit: This is a dongle with old BT version I see now, but I'm sure you can find a Asus BT4.0 version.

    Edit2:

    @aasim1111 I have this one, it doesn't show that it supports A2DP in the specs but I think it'll work, otherwise send a mail to Asus and ask.
