Starting with Windows Update 10 May 2020, the ability to stream music from your phone to your PC’s speakers is available again. If you have already upgraded to Windows 10 version 2004, you can now stream music from your Android, iPhone and mobile phone to your PC via Bluetooth.

In other words, you can wirelessly pair your mobile device to your PC via Bluetooth and then stream music. There are no restrictions and you can also stream audio that is played in Chrome, YouTube or the built-in music player to the audio point on your desktop or laptop, such as wired speakers and headphones.

This feature takes advantage of the Bluetooth A2DP drop feature that was previously available in Windows 7 in the Control Panel and third-party applications. Intel has confirmed that the Bluetooth A2DP sink has been left out when Windows 8 is released for consumer users.
