- You play an audio file on a Windows 8-based or Windows RT-based computer. The sound is played from the computer speakers.
- You pair a third-party Bluetooth audio device that supports Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) to the computer.
- When the process that pairs and connects the audio device starts, the sound is still played from the computer speakers.
- You set the paired device as the default audio device. The sound is played from the paired device.
- You turn off the device and then the sound is played from the computer speakers.
- You turn on the device again.
- The expected behavior is that sound is played from the paired device after the device is turned on.
- Bluetooth headsets and audio devices can be paired to a Windows 8-based computer that lets users listen to audio by using Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) or Bluetooth Hands-Free Profile (HFP).
