Stream iphone Audio to Windows 10 via bluetooth

Is it possible to stream iphone Audio to Windows 10 via Bluetooth?

I have successfully paired the pc and iPhone via Bluetooth, but audio (example: amazon music) from iPhone is not coming through to PC speakers.

I have ALREADY TRIED:

  • Using Troubleshoot function in Win10
  • Update iPhone drivers in Device Mgr

Has ANYBODY out there been able to do this? Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Also, I don't have iTunes on my PC, and really don't want to install it.

Hi,

Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

I appreciate your interest on Windows 10.

Before we proceed I would like you to answer the following questions:

  1. Could you please tell me if any other device's Bluetooth  around is enabled?
  2. Are you using pc to listen to music?

I suggest you to turn off other device's  Bluetooth around and check.

I also would like to inform you that if you paired the pc and iPhone via Bluetooth then you will be able to listen to music from pc only.

Please get back to us with updated status, we will be happy to assist you.

  2. Are you using pc to listen to music?

1. No other device is enabled

2. That is the goal, to play music thru the pc speakers, via Bluetooth from the iPhone

So to reiterate, the pairing is successful but no sound is streaming thru to the pc speakers.

I don't know anyone personally that has been able to do this (with iPhone or Android). And I've seen other posts that indicate there was no solution as well.

I think at this time we're just looking for a definitive answer from Microsoft that this can't be done at this time.

Looks like they do not have a solution I guess since there's no answer here. I think it needs to be hardwired to the audio.

It stinks because I have a little 20 dollar speaker I got at Bed Bath & Beyond that does this automatically no config needed, yet I have a Beats Audio PC that can't do it? CRIKEY!

I can do this on my DELL XPS8500 with Windows 7 Ultimate.

I can't do this on my Dell i5559 that I just purchased (april 2016) it uses Windows 10...

Go figure, we're moving backwards instead of forward.

I am so tired of Microsoft NOT following through on this topic. The last time that anyone was able to listen to music via their iPhone to computer was in Windows 7. Drivers were released by the Bluetooth adapter manufacturer. For example, my adapter is made by Motorola. The last driver released for the feature you're looking for was back in 2010. They haven't come out with a driver for Windows 8, 8.1, or 10.

Why?  Microsoft doesn't like the idea of this feature, because it infringes on copy write issues. So the alternative is to plug your iPhone into the line-in jack of your sound card, and listen to music that way. Make sure you go under Line-in (Under Recording) properties, and check the box that shows the graphic of the RCA jack and the speaker.

I am tried of motherboard manufacturers coming out with devices/ features, the Microsoft will not support in newer O/S.

I resolved this issue by going to Broadcom's site (https://www.broadcom.com/support/bluetooth) and re-installing the Widcomm software. It had been automatically removed during my in-place upgrade to Win10 for being non-compatible. So even though I had a working Bluetooth driver from Lenovo, I was missing this software. I didn't think much of it until I tried to stream audio from my iphone to Win10. The phone would pair, but it would not "connect" (the phone would report the device is not supported).

The version of Widcomm I downloaded and installed (12.0.1.940) is newer than what I had under Win 8.1 (12.0.0.9580), but the Bluetooth driver included in the package is older than the one I had. Though it seems to be working just fine thus far. The Lenovo System Update util does not try to upgrade the driver, nor does it offer up the Widcomm software.

As a plus, under Win 8.1, when I would stream audio from my iphone, the bluetooth driver btwavdt.sys would leak memory and eat up my non-paged pool memory. That issue is not happening under Win10 with the latest Broadcom software.
