I have 16.04 Ubuntu on my Laptop (no bluetooth device on the laptop). I have a bluetooth headset and an android phone. Is there anyway I can connect my phone to the laptop and use the phone's bluetooth to redirect the audio stream from PC to the headset?


On the android phone:

  • install and run Bubble UPnP (tested) or any other DLNA or Chromecast client
  • pair and select your Bluetooth headset as output
