Hi Michael,

I never had a use case to play audio via WSL. But in theory it should work when you install PulseAudio on both WSL and Windows host. I just checked, for Windows there is a download with binaries and setup. Inside your distro in WSL it should be simple to install with the package manager.

I did a quick research and found this article that seemed like a good tutorial (scroll down to the "Enabling Audio" section).

If you struggle at some point with that, comment here and I'll try to help :)
