If you didn’t already know, Bluetooth is a type of wireless connection that will easily transmit audio channels and is a popular connection method for today’s wireless devices. So popular in fact, some developers have decided to do away with the 3.5mm audio jack on their devices. Let’s jump in and get you connected to that device you just purchased.

Prerequisites:

Prerequisites are few and should be pretty easy to come by if you are reading this article.

  1. You must have a mobile device
  2. You must have a Bluetooth device to connect your device to

Making a Connection:

  1. Launch your app drawer and find the settings icon (gear), tap it
  2. Under the connections section, find and tap the Bluetooth option
  3. Tap the slider or button to enable your Bluetooth radio
  4. Set your Bluetooth device into connection mode (see the manual from your device to see how to accomplish this)
  5. Tap the scan button to discover your Bluetooth device
  6. When you see your device in the list, tap on your device to make a connection
    1. When you make the connection, some devices may require you to type in a number password, this should be explained in your devices owners manual.

Look at that. Your device is now connected to a new speaker or headset (or whatever you bought). Fire up the music or make that hands free phone call.
