    Stream music from Android phone to Win 10 laptop not possible?!


    So I was looking to stream music via bluetooth from My Samsung Note 5 to my new MSI laptop connected via 3.5mm jack to my speaker system. I've found lots of threads discussing it, but no answers. In one thread, the post included a link to Intel saying that MS Windows 10 does removed/not allow such capability. Is this true? Link below.

    Bluetooth(R) Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) Profile Support...

    How about using a program like Plex? With Plex, your Note 5 can advertise itself as a Server.

    You can also purchase very inexpensively a Bluetooth receiver (a very small device) specifically for the purpose of receiving audio via Bluetooth. It has audio output that you can plug into the line-in connection on your laptop, then just set the volume control to play audio from the line-in jack.

    why not just connect you phone to your PC via USB cable and listen/transfer music that way.

    Will look into Plex. Thanks,
    I have a BT receiver attached to my home entertainment center and it works well to stream from my phone. I was just thinking the my new hot laptop would be able to accept a stream and output to the Klipsch speakers attached to it. (This is in a different room.) I was hoping to avoid another piece of equipment and the accompanying power brick.
