I am able to stream audio over bluetooth from phone to desktop just by pairing (at least before SFOS 2.1.4). But the other way round - routing audio from desktop/laptop to jolla phone - seems to be more complicated as 'pavucontrol' on desktop only lists headset audio gateway (HSP/HFP) and HighFidelityCapture(A2DP-source) as possible profiles. So the question is how to select a Jolla device as A2DP-sink for audio output (or HSP/HFP gateway pc->jolla-device)?

setting class=0x240414 (loudspeaker) or class=0x240428 (hi-fi device) in file /etc/bluetooth/main.conf in SFOS doesn't seem to work...

Simply following this thread because of Helm 2.0.

(the link should work now)

Bluetooth audio could be one of the choices in the Media app. ...a bit like FM radio, but instead of favorite channels there would be a list of paired audio sources.
