When I first got my Chromebook I was very disappointed that it didn’t have bluetooth. I use my stereo bluetooth (A2DP) headphones quite a bit to listen to music so the lack of bluetooth was an annoyance, albeit a minor one. Just as Android didn’t have A2DP in the first iterations of the OS neither has ChromeOS.
Well, that is now changing.
François Beaufort, Chromium Evangelist, posted on Google+ that “Experimental support for Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile aka A2DP has been added in Chrome OS Dev“. He suggests that if you have A2DP bluetooth headphones/speakers you test it out and report any bugs you may encounter.
Now all I need is a Chromebook with bluetooth. The Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook does not have the necessary bluetooth hardware, but the Samsung Series 3 is Bluetooth 3.0 compatible.
