How can you view what Bluetooth codec is currently active?

Doing some digging seems to show that Windows 10 now natively supports Apt-X, the Bluetooth codec.

When using my Apt-X headphones, how can I see in windows which codec is being used?

In Android this is pretty easy, but in windows it seems to be hidden.

#EDIT seems his isn't currently possible so please up-vote this on the feedback hub, see: https://aka.ms/I56pwy

Hi,

Windows 10 allows users to check the list of the connected devices on the computer. Follow these steps to view the connected devices on your PC:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Devices.
  3. Click on Connected Devices and then the list that will appear will show all the devices that are connected to your Windows 10 computer.

Displaying what Bluetooth codec is currently active is one of the system's limitations of Windows 10. We believe that your idea of being able to view what Bluetooth codec is currently active on your Windows 10 device can result to a better computing experience. Because of this, we encourage you to submit it as a feedback using our Feedback Hub. By doing so, there is a possibility that the option will be available as a product improvement.
