Galaxy Nexus - Connect to Bluetooth devices

Last Update date : 2017.05.17

Bluetooth is a short-range wireless communications technology used to communicate between devices over a distance of about 8 meters. The most common Bluetooth devices are headsets for making calls or listening to music, hands-free kits for cars, and other portable devices, including laptops.


There are several Bluetooth profiles that define the features and communications standards for Bluetooth devices. For a list of the profiles supported by your device, read the owner's guide.


To connect to a Bluetooth device, you must turn on your phone's Bluetooth radio. The first time you use a new Bluetooth device, you must “pair” it with, so that both devices know how to connect securely to each other. After that, they connect automatically.


To extend the life of your battery between charges, turn off Bluetooth when you're not using it. You may also be required to turn Bluetooth off in some locations. Bluetooth is turned off when you switch to Airplane mode.


System bar icons indicate Bluetooth status.


Turn Bluetooth on or off:

1) Touch the Settings icon button.jpgon a Home or All Apps screen.


2) Touch Wireless & networks.


3) Slide the Bluetooth switch on or off.
