Windows 10 finally gets full AirPods compatibility



Until recently, Windows 10 supported two codecs when playing music over a wireless connection: far from the highest quality SBC and the rather rare AptX. At the same time, Apple relies on the prevalent AAC for its devices. In view of this, there was no need to talk about full support for AirPods in Windows 10. But Microsoft has already taken a step forward: in the latest test build of Windows 10, published in the Insider Preview channel, there was support for AAC.

There is another interesting innovation: if earlier a device (for example, a headset) supporting different codecs was displayed in the system as several devices, then in the new version of Windows 10 it is presented as a single, whole device. This will make it much easier for the user to navigate.

All of these innovations are important, but they have not yet been implemented in the custom version of Windows 10. Most likely, AAC support in versions of OS installed on users’ computers will appear along with a big spring update – it will be released in May.
