Most QLED, 4K, UHD, and SUHD TV models can connect lots of different Bluetooth devices - like Bluetooth headphones, speakers and Soundbars, as well as keyboards and gaming controllers. You can follow the steps below on how to pair Bluetooth audio devices, or check out the Connection Guide right on your TV at Settings > Source > Connection Guide.

Please Note: If your TV Model number ends with a 3 (ie. UA55MU6103WXXY), you may not be able to connect Bluetooth devices. Check the specifications online for your specific TV to make sure.

For detailed steps on pairing Bluetooth Keyboards to a Samsung TV, please see the page on How to pair Wireless Keyboards to Samsung TVs. If your TV was manufactured between 2012 and 2014, you'll need to check out the page on Connecting SoundShare Devices to a Samsung TV for information on connecting Bluetooth SoundShare devices.
