How to Use Bluetooth Tethering on Android

Bluetooth tethering is used to share the mobile’s data connection with other devices via Bluetooth.

It offers the slowest speed when compared with other tethering methods (USB tethering and WiFi tethering).

In this instance, I’m going to use two Android phones (Android Pie and Oreo). Let’s get started.

Steps

  1. Pair both the Android phones.

  2. Now, open the Settings app on the device from which you want to share internet.

  3. Hit Network & Internet > Hotspot & tethering.

  4. Hit the toggle beside “Bluetooth tethering.”

  5. Now, open the Settings app on the device for which the internet connection is needed.

  6. Tap Connected devices > Bluetooth.

  7. Beneath the “Paired devices” section, you can see the device from which you’ll get internet access.

  8. Tap the “Gear” icon beside that device.

  9. In the popup, select “Internet access” and then tap “Ok.”
    Selected Internet access

That’s it. All done.

You can stop Bluetooth tethering from any one of the devices, and here’s how:

In the device which is providing internet: Go to the Settings app. Hit Network & Internet > Hotspot & tethering. Hit the toggle beside “Bluetooth tethering.” That’s all.

In the device which is receiving the internet: Open Settings app. Tap Connected devices > Bluetooth. Beneath the “Paired devices” section, you can see the device from which you get internet. Tap it and tap “Ok” in the popup. That’s all.
