If you’re looking for an easy way to get your bluetooth speakers connected to your computer, there are a few different methods you can try. In this article, we’ll show you how to connect a Bluetooth speaker to a Windows PC using two different methods: the built-in Bluetooth connection and the Bluetooth connection via a 3rd party app.
What is Bluetooth?
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that helps to connect electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, speakers and even cars. Bluetooth allows users to wirelessly share files, music, photos and videos with other nearby Bluetooth-enabled devices. It’s also possible to use Bluetooth to control devices in close proximity, such as a set of smart lights.
How to Connect Bluetooth Speakers to PC:
There are two ways you can connect your Bluetooth speakers to your PC: through the default Windows 10 audio settings or by using a dedicated Bluetooth connection software.
Method One: Connect Your Bluetooth Speakers Through Windows 10 Audio Settings
To connect your Bluetooth speakers through Windows 10 audio settings, open the Sound Settings on your computer. Click on the Playback tab and select the bluetooth speaker you want to connect from the list of available devices. You will then be prompted to enter the device’s PIN code if it has one. Once connected, you can play music from your speaker by selecting it from the Playback list and clicking on the Play button.
If you want to disconnect your speaker from your computer, simply click on the Disconnect button in the Sound Settings window.

How to Connect Bluetooth Speakers to a PC
If you want to connect your Bluetooth speakers to your PC, there are a few things you need to do first.

What are the Different Types of Bluetooth Speakers?
Bluetooth speakers are perfect for when you need to enjoy your music, but don’t want to be tied down to a cable. They’re also great for when you want to move around and take your music with you. So what are the different types of Bluetooth speakers?
There are three main types of Bluetooth speakers: wired, wireless, and Bluetooth audio. Wired speakers use an audio cable to connect them to your computer or stereo. Wireless speakers connect wirelessly to your device, but they can also be connected by an audio cable if you prefer. Bluetooth audio speakers connect wirelessly as well, but they also have a built-in amplifier and speaker so you can listen to your music without any cables at all.
How to Make a Bluetooth Speaker Play Music from Your Phone
In order to get your bluetooth speaker hooked up and playing music from your phone wirelessly, you’ll first need to make sure that both devices are connected to the same network. From there, you can follow these simple steps:
Open the Bluetooth settings on your phone. If it’s not already open, tap the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the screen and select Bluetooth Settings. On the Bluetooth Settings screen, make sure that your phone is connected to the internet and has a strong signal. Next, open the audio player on your computer and find and select the bluetooth connection you want to use. If you don’t see a bluetooth connection listed, make sure that your computer is set up to search for bluetooth devices. (Most computers have this feature built-in.) On the speaker, press the connect button. The speaker should now start playing music from your phone. To disconnect, press the disconnect button on your phone or computer.
