How To Check Bluetooth Version of Windows 10

Bluetooth is one of the most important features of our system which we use to connect our wireless headphones and wireless speakers. We all love using wireless devices but sometimes it creates a problem when the Bluetooth version of your Windows computer and the version of your Bluetooth device doesn’t match. 

And always remember to turn off notification sound in Windows 10 when your system is connected to Bluetooth speaker to enjoy your music without any disturbance. 

Now, most of the Bluetooth device comes with the support of Bluetooth 4.0 or later and if your Windows 10 PC is not supporting Bluetooth 4.0 (at least), you can’t able to connect.

If the number is LMP 5.x (where ‘x’ is another number) then you’re on Bluetooth 3.0. LMP 6.x is Bluetooth 4.0; LMP 7.x is Bluetooth 4.1; LMP 8.x is Bluetooth 4.2; LMP 9.x is Bluetooth 5.0; LMP 10.x is Bluetooth 5.1.

If your LMP number is below 5, then you’ll have Bluetooth 1.0 to 2.1. In case you’re wondering, ‘LMP’ stands for Link Manager Protocol, which is the technology Bluetooth uses to send and receive communications.
