How to Turn On and Off Bluetooth on Android

You can turn on and off Bluetooth automatically or manually on Android. Here's how you can do that (In this instance, I'm using an Android device running Oreo):

Turn On and Off Bluetooth Manually

You can do this task in 3 different ways and here are they:

Unlock your Android device. Say "Okay Google" and then "Turn on Bluetooth."

Turned on Bluetooth

That's it. The Bluetooth is turned on.

To view Bluetooth settings, say "Okay Google" and then "Open Bluetooth settings."

To turn off Bluetooth, say "Okay Google" and then "Turn off Bluetooth."

Turned off Bluetooth

Note: Except "Okay Google," you can use all the above commands in "Google Search Bar" in your device. For "Open Bluetooth settings" command, you need to tap "Tick" icon too.

In the home screen, slide down from the top. Do this once again. Now, you can see "Quick Settings."

Slide from right to left, and you can see the "Bluetooth" icon. Hit it, and that's all. The Bluetooth is enabled successfully.

To turn off the Bluetooth, hit the "Bluetooth" icon (use the above steps to find this icon) and that's it.

Open "Settings" app in your Android device.

Hit "Connected devices." Tap the toggle beside "Bluetooth."

That's all. The Bluetooth is activated successfully.

If you want to view settings of Bluetooth, hit the "Bluetooth" (see above screenshot) and you can see the Bluetooth settings.

If you wish to disable Bluetooth, then tap the toggle beside "Bluetooth."

Turn On and Off Bluetooth Automatically

You need to install a third-party app to do this task, and here we'll see one that does this task efficiently.
