Bluetooth Mic/Speaker Combo?

Can I use my Bluetooth Speaker/Mic or do they have to be aux and USB?

We have some basic doco on this here:

I’m a it more concerned about input. Can I use the built in mic (on the speaker) or do I need a new mic

This post talks about using bluetoothctl which is part of the bluez stack, but I haven’t tried it myself.

I’ve also heard people needing to run pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover before pairing the Bluetooth device to get it to connect.

Ok, I just wanted to know if I needed to go ahead and buy a mic

I am using mycroft with a Augustin MS545 bluetooth device. This is my script:

# Use this script to execute custom actions on startup.
echo "power on \nagent on \ndefault-agent \nconnect xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx \nquit" | bluetoothctl
pacmd set-card-profile bluez_card.xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx headset_head_unit_unit
pacmd set-default-sink bluez_sink.xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx.headset_head_unitunit
pacmd set-default-source bluez_source.xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx.headset_head_unit

and then you launch the mycroft-setup-wizard, paying attention to choose USB for mic and hear.
I hope this will help somebody,
