How to Turn a PC Into a Bluetooth Speaker

With a Bluetooth-enabled Windows computer and a Bluetooth-enabled device, you will be able to play music from your external device on your PC. With Windows, you can access files that are stored on a Bluetooth device and play those files. In this way you are using your PC as a Bluetooth speaker. This is useful if you have a mobile phone that has built-in Bluetooth and it stores MP3s on it. While you may be able to play your MP3s on your phone, your computer and it's speakers will often be far louder.
