How Do You Use Your Android Device as a Wireless Microphone on Windows 10?
To start using an Android device as a wired or wireless microphone on Windows 10, you’ll need to first download three separate bits of software. All of which are free and allow Android and Windows to communicate in the required manner.
On your Android device, you will need to visit the Google Play Store and download Wo Mic.
On your Windows 10 device, you will need to download the Wo Mic Client and the Wo Mic Driver.
When you have installed Wo Mic on your Android device and the Wo Mic client and driver on your Windows device, you’ll be able to begin the setup process. If you fail to install either of these three components, you won’t be able to use Wo Mic correctly. Just remember to Restart your Windows 10 device after installing the Wo Mic driver.

Now that you have all the software ready to go, the rest of the process is relatively simple. First, open the Wo Mic app on your Android device, then tap the Settings icon at the top. Next, tap Transport and select the connection method you’d like to use. For this guide we are using Bluetooth, however, you can use whichever option works best for you. Once you have Bluetooth selected, tap Audio Source, then choose Mic.
Finally go back to the main page and tap the Play icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen, next to the Settings icon.

This will open a similar looking screen as on Android that displays the connection methods available. Again choose Bluetooth (or the option you chose on Android) then select your device from the list. As soon as you click Ok, the two programs will establish a connection.
For the final step, open Settings on Windows 10, then go to System > Sound and select Microphone (Wo Mic Device) as your source.
Once done, you can start using your Android device's microphone on Windows 10. If you don’t see Wo Mic under input options within the sound menu, you probably didn’t restart your computer or install the driver.
