Bluetooth is not only suitable for pairing headphones and speakers for streaming music or making calls. The protocol is also very suitable for the rapid exchange of data between two Android devices.
Exchange data between two smartphones via Bluetooth
To do this, you must first pair both smartphones with each other. Put one device into pairing mode using “Settings / Connected devices / Pair new device” and activate Bluetooth on the other. The second smartphone then appears in the list of available devices for the first. After you have selected it, you have to confirm the pairing on both sides. To identify the two devices, they exchange a six-digit code, the so-called passkey. If the connection establishment has been confirmed on both sides, the devices are coupled with each other.
Confirm the mutual coupling request on both smartphones using the passkey.
If you would like to exchange data between the devices in the following – such as one or more photos – please mark them in Google Photos and then select Bluetooth using the share function. Confirm the receiving device again. As soon as you have confirmed receipt on the second smartphone, the data transfer begins.
