    Option to play audio from Bluetooth device is missing from Settings


    I want to stream audio via Bluetooth from my Android phone to my laptop running Windows 10 version 1703, but the option to play audio from phone via Bluetooth is not showing up on Settings>Bluetooth and Other Devices. Obviously, I have already paired my Android device with my laptop, and my device is visible on Other Devices, and listed as "Paired". I have also already checked my device properties on Devices and Printers, and on Service tab, "Advanced Audio" (A2DP profile) box is checked. Both my laptop and Android phone have Bluetooth 4.0 support, with my laptop also supporting HS extension, and my phone, LE (Low Energy).

    I have no clue why Bluetooth audio playback isn't showing. How would I make Windows play audio via Bluetooth from my device? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Option to play Bluetooth audio is missing from Settings

    Hi,

    Bluetooth devices require pairing refresh before you can connect them again properly. If you find that Windows 10 does not recognize or detect a Bluetooth device (or devices) that was previously paired up, all you have to do is go to the
    Device Manager, select the Bluetooth driver and update it. The operating system should be able to automatically search the Internet for available resources to update the driver.

    As an alternative, you can unpair or forget the device and pair it again on the same process when you establish a Bluetooth connection across your devices. Visit this

    link
    for more information about how you can setup a wireless audio device.

    Let us know if you need more help.
