Connect Using Bluetooth on Your Galaxy S6

Galaxy S6 Connect Bluetooth

Bluetooth technology is a wireless connectivity feature that has a low power consumption but a short interconnection range. You can connect to various wireless devices that are Bluetooth enabled such as wireless speakers, wireless headsets and entertainment devices. Through this feature, you can share various content with connected devices and connect to Bluetooth enabled cars.

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

Connect to a Bluetooth Device

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.

To connect to a Bluetooth device, Bluetooth must first be turned on and in discoverable mode or visible.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, then search and select Bluetooth.

  3. Touch the slider to turn on Bluetooth.
