Pair a Bluetooth device to your tablet

Bluetooth lets you connect your tablet 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 your tablet with some Bluetooth headphones.

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

Connect to a Bluetooth device

Got a Samsung phone you want to pair with? You have two ways to do it: through Settings or the Notification Panel.

From Settings, search for and select Bluetooth. To turn on Bluetooth, tap the switch, and then select the device you want to connect to.

Want another way to get connected? Open the Notification Panel by swiping down from the top of the screen. Touch and hold the Bluetooth icon, and then select the device you want to connect to.

Turn off Bluetooth

When you're finished using your Bluetooth devices for the day, it’s a good idea to turn off Bluetooth to save your phone some battery life.

To disable Bluetooth, open Settings, and then search for and select Bluetooth. To turn off Bluetooth, 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.
