Use Your Phone as Your Primary Audio Device for Your Computer

With BToE, you can use your VVX phone to play audio from media, such as music or web videos, by setting your phone as your default communication device for your computer.

Note: You can also set a USB audio device ( 48 kHz or 16 kHz sampling frequency) or system audio device as your primary device for streaming audio on your computer while you use the VVX phone as your microphone and speaker for calls placed in the Skype for Business client.

  2. In the Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound > Sound.
  3. Click Polycom VVX Phone and click the drop-down arrow for Set Default.
  4. Select Default Communication Device and click OK.
    Any audio from music or videos plays on your VVX phone and the PC Audio screen is displayed, as shown next.
