Windows 10 improves audio over Bluetooth headsets with the new update. Microsoft keeps up the pace of updates and new features for its operating system. The latest they are testing is an improvement for audio listening through Bluetooth headsets.
Bluetooth headsets are the order of the day, they are the faithful companions of the ears of thousands of users and have a great variety. Different companies have bet on this type of product with very different results.
Even Microsoft itself has its headphones, although the problem does not go there, it is more the compatibility and proper functioning of Bluetooth headphones with Windows devices. To date, the most convenient way to listen to music or watch a movie on a laptop is to use a wired headset.
As we still have the headphone input port, using Bluetooth headphones was almost ruled out, especially when the Bluetooth version of laptops is usually not the best.
Microsoft wants users to connect their Bluetooth headphones to their computers and listen to music with the best quality and without problems. So far Windows has only supported SBC and AptX audio codecs via Bluetooth. In the update that is being prepared, support for the AAC codec will be implemented.
The inclusion of this audio codec would allow the use of a wider range of headphones, as many have this codec. In line with this implementation, the sound menu would change when selecting audio outputs. It would be much more intelligent and would indicate the audio outputs via Bluetooth. In addition, it would no longer show the different sound settings for each item, something that confuses users.
Another improvement under development is to automate the connection and disconnection of Bluetooth devices for calls or just listening to music. This would end up being much simpler and more convenient for the user.
The improvement that Microsoft has prepared for Windows is still in the testing phase and users who are in the betas can test it. At the moment there is no date for the arrival of this new feature, but it may arrive with the next Windows update.
