Pair a Bluetooth device to your Galaxy phone
Bluetooth lets you connect your Galaxy phone to many different devices. Turn it into a concert hall by connecting it to Bluetooth speakers, or forgo the tangled mess of headphone wires and pair with some Bluetooth headphones.
Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries.
Got a Bluetooth device you want to pair with? You have two ways to do it: through Settings or the Notification Panel.
When you're finished using your Bluetooth devices for the day, it’s a good idea to turn off Bluetooth to save some battery life. To disable Bluetooth, open Settings, and then search for and select Bluetooth. To turn off Bluetooth, simply tap the switch.
A quicker way to turn off Bluetooth is through the Notification panel. Swipe down from the top of the screen, and then tap the Bluetooth icon (a grey icon indicated Bluetooth is turned off).
Sometimes, you'll need to unpair a Bluetooth device in order to add a new device. Unpairing a device may also help with connectivity problems.
From Settings, search for and select Bluetooth, and then tap Bluetooth. Select the device you wish to unpair. Tap Settings (the gear icon next to the device's name), and then tap Unpair.
