Windows 10: How can you view what Bluetooth codec is currently active?

    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.

    Try Nir Sofer's InstalledCodec. It shows ALL of the codecs installed on your PC, so you'll have to ferret out which ones relate to Bluetooth on your own. I see other queries about this online, but nothing definitive about how to find this information. This blog post looks promising, though: 3 Ways to Check Installed Audio and Video Codecs On Your Computer.

    I just tried to access your feedback but it says "your account doesn't have access to this feedback." Great, Microsoft.

    Here is a proper link to a proper feedback report. https://aka.ms/AA17jnm

    Could it be because I'm a windows insider? Link works fine for me still.
