Connect to a Paired Bluetooth Device

You can listen to music over a Bluetooth stereo headset, or have hands-free conversations using a compatible Bluetooth headset or car kit. It’s the same procedure to set up stereo audio and hands-free devices.

Important: Make sure that the headset is discoverable. Refer to the headset manual for details.

  1. Turn Bluetooth on and check the list of available devices. See Enable the Bluetooth Feature.
  2. If you don't see your headset listed, tap Scan for devices to refresh the list.
  3. Tap the name of your headset in the Available Devices section. HTC U11 pairs with the headset and the headset connection status is displayed in the Paired Devices section.
  4. If prompted to enter a passcode, try 0000 or 1234, or consult the headset documentation to find the passcode.
  • When the Bluetooth headset is connected, you'll see bluetooth connected status icon in the status bar.

Note: Due to different specifications and features of other Bluetooth-compatible devices, display and operations may be different, and functions such as transfer or exchange may not be possible with all Bluetooth-compatible devices.
