If your device comes with a Bluetooth module, then you can use it with a wide range of wireless peripherals. It will allow you to pair your laptop or tablet with a bunch of devices like a mobile phone, wireless keyboards, mice, headsets and other tablets and laptops. With recent updates, Windows 10 can display the Bluetooth device battery level right in the Settings app. This can be useful when you have a Bluetooth mouse and/or keyboard.

Bluetooth hardware can be embedded in your device's motherboard or it can be installed as an internal module inside the device. Bluetooth transmitters exist as an external device which can be connected to a USB port.

Note: Your Windows 10 device may come with various Bluetooth versions. Depending on the version supported by your hardware, you may or may not have some of the Bluetooth features. For example, Bluetooth 4.0 adds Bluetooth Smart / Bluetooth Low Energy standard in addition to the Classic Bluetooth specification. It is a significant improvement in prolonging battery life of devices. See

  1. I wish this article was true for all Bluetooth devices, but not all of them will show their battery level in Windows 10. I have a set of rechargeable Bluetooth headphones that doesn’t show it, so I have no way of knowing how much power is left in them, till they suddenly run low and need to be recharged. :(

  2. I would suspect that this feature is for only Microsoft Bluetooth Devices only. So any Device not manufactured by Microsoft, won’t display it’s remaining Battery percentage.

  3. Doesn’t work.
    Logitech keyboard and mouse require use of their software since they use a “unifying” Bluetooth device.
    But, then again, I don’t expect ANYTHING to work under Windows10 the way the advertisements say they do. WORST OS I’ve used yet… and I’ve been using Windows OS since MSDOS.
