This tutorial will show you how to choose whether audio output from your Android phone plays from your PC or your phone in the Phone Link app on Windows 11.

The Phone Link app on your Windows PC let's you get instant access to everything you love on your phone, right from your PC. Link your iPhone or Android phone and PC to view and reply to text messages, make and receive calls, and more - all right on your PC.

When you open an audio player app from your phone within the Phone Link app on your PC, you can select to hear the audio output on your computer or mobile device (phone).

Reference:


EXAMPLE: New "Hear audio on your PC" feature for Phone Link app

Here's How:

1 Open the Phone Link app on your Windows 11 PC.

2 Click/tap on the Settings (gear) icon. (see screenshot below)

3 Click/tap on Features in the middle Settings pane.

4 Under Apps in the right Features pane, select Computer (default) or Mobile device (phone) in the Hear audio from drop menu for what you want.

That's it,

Also, when I open and app, I keep getting the message "Your android device went to sleep" even though it's not asleep.
It says, "Wake it up by selecting the button below" I click the "Wake Up" button, but it does nothing.

But that's another issue.

Yet another issue. The Music Player notification can't be cleared. "Clear All" is greyed out and below it says, "No new notifications".
I tried restarting Phone Link, but it's still the same.

I just checked whether I can hear audio from my Android phone apps.
I tried Music Player and MediaMonkey. Music Player plays audio on my computer, but MediaMonkey doesn't. It only plays it on the phone. Both of these apps have "No Permissions Denied".


Yes, I have Link to Windows app installed.
When you launch an app on the phone you can use this setting to determine whether the sound comes out of the Computer or Phone speakers. Did you check this?

It's been a couple months since the last post, but I can't believe how different my install looks from the examples above. I have crappy sound with Phone Link on my pc but I can't get ANY sound from the other apps on the phone to my pc. I don't have the settings available:

You don’t mention what phone it is. Have you done a search on the internet for your phone, is it capable of doing this? Apparently, not all phones are.

It's a Samsung Galaxy S10. I link BT audio to other devices (speakers) with no issues. Connected it to the pc with no issue, but when I go into the BT settings on the phone, the "Calls" is enabled, but the "Audio" is not and I can't turn it on.

I should of welcomed you to the forum, sorry @Wysocki. Welcome 🙏

I remember this thread here. I have provided you with a link to where they start talking about audio. I can’t say it will help you but maybe worth a read of it. There are most likely other Phonelink Audio threads also.

I realise that you say the phone calls work but app sounds dont. Do you know if your phone is set to be able to run in the background?

  1. Press both the Windows + X keys and select Search to access that tool.
  2. Type Apps & Features inside the search utility’s text box.
  3. Select Apps & features to open Settings’ uninstaller tool.
  4. Then click the three-dot menu button for Phone Link.
  5. Select Advanced options to access the Background apps permissions menu for Phone Link.
  6. Click the Always option on the Background apps permissions drop-down menu.
And another tutorial from @Brink

I can't enable Audio either in the Phone Bluetooth settings but that doesn't affect the ability to redirect sound from the games to the PC. That is controlled in Phone Link.

In Phone Link settings I can still select to Hear audio from Computer.

Before I knew about the audio settings in Phone Link I used the Bluetooth Audio Receiver app I downloaded from the Microsoft Store. Now I no longer need it.

With it I was able to redirect the audio from phone apps to the PC. Below is a screenshot of Bluetooth Audio Receiver connected to my phone. Note to return audio back to the phone I just close the connection.

Hi!
I have been having the same issue. I try to play any audio from my phone on my pc, and it still comes from the speakers of my phone. Did everything this thread suggested, but nothing works but screensharing my phone to my pc, which results in about 10 seconds of delay with terrible and laggy sound. Seems that Bluetooth Audio Receiver is the only option right now to stream phone audio to pc speakers.

This forum and the internet is strewn with Phone Link problems, especially audio ones.
I've sort of given up on Phone Link for now. The only positive thing I can say about it is, it's getting updated regularly. It's probably the most regularly updated app on my computers.

I used the Bluetooth Audio Receiver for a long time until I found out there was a setting for this in Phone Link.

Hi, Ed.
I know we've discussed various Phone Link problems before, but I've forgotten what type of phone you have. Is it an iPhone or an Android one?

From my research, iPhones don't seem to have as many problems with Phone Link.

From my research, iPhones don't seem to have as many problems with Phone Link.
I have a Samsung S21 5G with Android 14.

BTW, I just checked my phone a few minutes ago. I can still toggle the phone app audio between Computer and Mobile device just fine.
