Use the Bluetooth Feature on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Bluetooth lets you connect your S7 and S7 Edge to so many different devices, like speakers, headphones, or even other phones. Turn your phone into a concert stage by connecting to Bluetooth speakers. Or forgo the tangled mess of headphone wires and pair with Bluetooth headphones. You can also connect your phone to the Internet using Wi-Fi.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Connect to a Bluetooth Device

Maybe you want to safely use your phone hands-free in the car. To connect to a Bluetooth device, Bluetooth must first be turned on and in discoverable, or visible, mode. Read on to learn all about it.

If you are connecting to an older Bluetooth device, you may be asked for a PIN. The default PIN for many devices is four zeros—0000. Some devices have PINs specific to the device. The PIN will be in the device’s documentation.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.
       

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Bluetooth.   

    You can also turn on your device's Bluetooth transmitter using the Quick Panel shortcut. Open the Notification Panel by swiping down from the top of the screen. Then, touch Bluetooth.

  3. Touch the name of the device you want to connect to.  

    The Bluetooth communication range is approximately 30 feet.

      

  4. Follow the on-screen instructions for the pairing request.  

    Make sure the device you are attempting to connect to has been turned on.

      

  5. After the devices are connected, the devices you selected to pair with will now appear under Paired devices.  

    If the paired device does not appear under the Paired devices list, make sure your Bluetooth is on.

Unpair Devices

Time to split up? When you unpair from a Bluetooth device, the two devices no longer recognize each other. When you want to reconnect, you will need to pair the devices again.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Bluetooth.    

  3. Touch Settings next to the name of the device you want to unpair.  

  4. To disconnect the device, touch Unpair.
