Many Android users are wondering if they can pair their terminals with multiple Bluetooth devices simultaneously. While most of the time, you only need to connect your phone to one Bluetooth device, there are times when you need multiple connections. Let’s dive right in and explore if your Android terminal supports multiple Bluetooth connections.
Can Android Connect to Multiple Bluetooth Devices?
Most Android devices can connect to two or five Bluetooth devices simultaneously, while others support up to seven devices. The number of supported connections depends on the Bluetooth module your device is equipped with. Obviously, the newer the hardware, the more Bluetooth devices you can connect to.
Bluetooth 5.0 Devices
Bluetooth 5-enabled Android devices support up to seven simultaneous Bluetooth connections. However, your manufacturer or carrier may limit this number. The quickest way to test that is actually to try to connect to seven devices via Bluetooth. The good news is that you should be able to activate additional Bluetooth connections in Developer mode.
For example, Samsung Galaxy S21 supports Bluetooth 5.0, while the S21 Ultra model supports Bluetooth 5.2. In other words, both of these devices support multiple Bluetooth connections.
If you own a Huawei device, the number of supported Bluetooth connections also depends on your OS version.
- If you’re running EMUI 11.0 or HarmonyOS 2.0, you can simultaneously pair your terminal with five Bluetooth audio devices. However, only two of these Bluetooth devices can connect to audio calls.
- If your Huawei device is running EMUI 9.0 or later, you can use up to three Bluetooth connections.
- On the other hand, if you’re running EMUI 8.X, you can only connect to two Bluetooth audio devices.
Modern Android devices support multiple Bluetooth connections without any problems. The number of supported Bluetooth connections generally varies from two to seven, depending on the Bluetooth module your device is equipped with.
