Galaxy View - How do I connect Bluetooth Devices to my Samsung Galaxy View?

Using your device's Bluetooth transmitter, you can connect to a wireless headset and entertainment devices like wireless speakers. You can also connect to many car infotainment systems and share your device’s music. You can share content, such as pictures and contact cards, between two devices.

The Bluetooth communication range is approximately 30 feet.
