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. What’s the maximum number of Bluetooth devices you’ve ever paired your Android device with? Let us know in the comments below.
Thanks for posting this info, the staff in the shop selling the phones couldn’t advise me on how many bluetooth connections I could get on one phone. Well Done.
This is zero help. I want to know how to connect multiple headphone to my phone. ‘Does Android Support Multiple Bluetooth Connections’ is a title that clearly indicates the way to make the connections will be listed if the answer is yes. This is a version of a title click-bait. You should be ashamed for using this technique to get people to read this useless article.
Which Android phones will stream PHONE CALLS to two devices simultaneously? I have a hearing aid and a cochlear implant. Both are Blue-tooth enabled. I want to hear phone calls in both ears. Samsung, for instance, will stream music to multiple devices, but will only stream phone calls to one device.

I just want to know what samsung phones have dual Bluetooth
I have Galaxy S21 ultra 5g and it only allows up to 2 simultaneous devices and nothing below 5.0
In what way two or more connections are managed? What if there are connected to phone at the same time two audio handsfree devices? In which one an incoming call will be transfered?
