Key Takeaways

  • Windows doesn't have a built-in feature that lets you use your Android smartphone as an audio output device for your computer, but you can use the third-party app, AudioRelay, for this purpose.
  • Using the AudioRelay app, you can turn your phone into an audio output device for your computer using two connection methods: Wi-Fi and USB tethering. The setup for both options is easy.
  • Stopping the connection in the AudioRelay phone app usually automatically turns on your laptop's speakers, but occasionally you might need to manually switch the audio output device in Device Manager.
