Jeez guys, there used to be a time not so long ago, a little over a decade in fact, that our phones didn’t have half the features that they do today. I remember getting on the bus to high school with my earphones in one pocket and my phone in the other. Once the ride would start, I’d pull out the mesh of wires that were my earphones and after taking a long and difficult time untangling them, would finally poke the audio jack into my phone and listen to music along the way.

Today, a teenager going in the same bus to the same school won’t have to do what I did back then. He’d just pull out his wireless headphones from his backpack and then simply pair Bluetooth device to android and blast away the music without realizing how easy he has it.

Bluetooth, in short, has revolutionized the way the tech world is progressing, as more and more gadgets and phones are becoming increasingly reliant on them. There are literal little devices that you pin on your shoes that (via Bluetooth) can be connected to your phone and can calculate the steps you take, the amount of calories you burn, and other readings such as heart rate, total speed, etc.

Everyone who owns a smartphone is bound to know what a Bluetooth is and how it works. Nonetheless, this blog post is for those people who may not yet know how to pair Bluetooth device to an android, or may be looking to alternate ways of connecting if their own phone is experiencing some fault.

The only things you’ll need are your android phone, Bluetooth device, and a very basic understanding on how a smartphone works. Don’t fret! You don’t necessarily have to be a nerd to pair a Bluetooth device to android.
