Bluetooth devices are perfect if you want to get rid of all those messy cables and keep your desk tidy. I, for one, like to connect my Bluetooth speaker to my laptop and listen to music while working.

But there’s something that’s always driving me crazy: my Bluetooth speaker is running out of battery just when I’m listening to one of my favorite songs.

If you really hate it when your Bluetooth device runs out of battery and disconnects from your computer, we’ve got some good news for you.

Windows 10 will display the battery level of Bluetooth devices so that you won’t be caught by surprise by low battery issues.

Insiders can already test this feature

If you’re an Insider, you can already test this new feature by installing Windows 10 build 17639. This build release is available only Insiders who opted into Skip Ahead.

To access the new feature, go to Settings > Devices > Bluetooth & other devices Settings.

If you’re having trouble opening the Setting app, take a look at this article to solve the issue.


It is worth mentioning that this new feature won’t be compatible with all Bluetooth devices.

For Bluetooth devices that do support this feature, Windows 10 will update the battery percentage whenever the computer and the device are connected.

Unfortunately, we don’t have a list of Bluetooth devices that won’t support this battery indicator feature.

Otherwise, you’ll just have to connect your Bluetooth device and navigate to Bluetooth & other devices Settings to check if the battery level is displayed.

Being able to check the battery level of Bluetooth devices is very useful if you use many Bluetooth devices with your Windows 10 computer.


Your Bluetooth mouse is not working on Windows 10? Don’t worry, we’ve got the right solution for you.


In this manner, you’ll know when you need to charge them and avoid unpleasant situations where you simply can’t use them because they’ve run out of battery.

Microsoft could also improve this Bluetooth battery indicator by adding alerts. In this manner, users won’t have to open the Settings apps every time they want to check the battery level of their Bluetooth devices.
