Does Live Listen work on any Bluetooth device?

Answered by Tom Adger

As of now, Live Listen is a feature that is specifically available on Apple devices running iOS or iPadOS 14.3 or later. It allows you to use your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch as a microphone and stream the sound directly to your Bluetooth headphones. However, it is important to note that Live Listen is not supported on all Bluetooth devices.

To use Live Listen, you need to have compatible Bluetooth headphones connected to your Apple device. This includes AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, Powerbeats Pro, or Beats Fit Pro. These headphones have the necessary compatibility and functionality to work with Live Listen.

Unfortunately, Live Listen does not work with all Bluetooth devices. It is a feature that is specifically designed for Apple’s own Bluetooth headphones. This means that if you have a different brand or model of Bluetooth headphones, Live Listen may not be available or function properly.

In my personal experience, I have used Live Listen with AirPods and AirPods Pro, and it has worked seamlessly. It is a convenient feature that can be helpful in various situations, such as amplifying sound in a crowded environment or improving hearing in certain situations.

To sum up, Live Listen is a feature that is currently only available on select Apple devices and compatible Bluetooth headphones. It may not work with all Bluetooth devices, so it is important to check the compatibility before expecting it to function properly.
