Windows 10: Making Bluetooth phone calls

    Making Bluetooth phone calls


    In windows 7 you could pass phone call audio through your PC via Bluetooth. This seems to have been removed from 10. Has anyone found a work around?

    I'm having the same question as yours. I've been googling around and some said it only exist on Pro / Enterprise version of Win 10, which I don't know if that's real or not as I'm having Home Edition.

    Also some said it only works with Atheros based BT chipset, again what I've got is Broadcom based and according to my search the driver is a bit of mess and many people claim it isn't working at all.

    I'm also hoping for an answer to this as I desperately need this function to work.

    Thanks for the reply. I am running pro and it seems to be missing too. I'm also using a broadcom chip but had no problems on 7. From extensive research it appears to be completely missing for all 10 users. A work around would be great though

    According to some comment on the youtube tutorial, someone able to make it work on Win10 using Asus BT400 which I've just ordered and definitely will report back if it is sucessful.

    after a bit further fiddling I guess the issue is highly related to the driver rather than win 10 (my 2 cents only). I downloaded the latest driver off of broadcom websites and installed it and there are several new "services / virtual devices" appeared on the device manager including the handfree /handset protocol as we as phone book access. Sadly the phone function still isn't there, but instead I got a new function which I can "stream" my sound to the laptop. e.g. I play youtube on my phone the sound will be playback by the laptop speaker which is pretty nice. (it wasn't there using Dell driver which is a bit dated).

    Standard MS garbage policy.
