Stream Songs From Phone to Computer

There are many apps to stream from computer to phone (AirStream: Stream PC over Air or SoundWire) but I want to listen to a podcast or music using my Android phone but listening on my computer or  headset.  It’s a good thing you can  play the song wirelessly using Bluetooth on both the devices.

  1. Install Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center.
  2. Turn on Bluetooth on the computer and the phone then  each of them visible.
  3. Right-click on the Bluetooth icon in the Windows system tray and select the option Add a device
  4. Pair your phone and your computer with each other.
  5. Right-click on the Bluetooth   icon in the system tray again but now select Show Bluetooth Devices.
  6. Right-click on your paired phone and click on the Bluetooth Operations.
    1. (If A2DP support is available on the phone, it will show an option to Play Music under Audio and Video operation.)
  7. Click on the link to activate.
  8. You should now have a player control will appear on your taskbar (If not, try and right-click on the taskbar and select Bluetooth Remote Control under the Toolbars)
