How do I turn on my Alexa Bluetooth?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

To turn on Bluetooth on your Alexa device and connect it to a Bluetooth device, follow these steps:

1. Say, “Alexa, pair Bluetooth.” This command will put your Alexa device in Bluetooth pairing mode.

2. Put your Bluetooth device into pairing mode. The process for putting your Bluetooth device into pairing mode may vary depending on the device. Typically, you can do this by pressing and holding a button on the device until it enters pairing mode. Refer to the user manual or manufacturer’s instructions for your specific device if you’re unsure how to put it into pairing mode.

3. Open the Alexa app on your mobile device. The Alexa app is available for both iOS and Android devices and can be downloaded from the respective app stores.

4. Select the “Devices” tab at the bottom of the app. This will take you to the device management section.

5. Select “Echo & Alexa” from the list of options. This will display a list of all the Alexa devices associated with your Amazon account.

6. Select the Alexa device you want to pair with your Bluetooth device. If you have multiple Alexa devices, choose the one you want to connect to Bluetooth.

7. Scroll down and select “Bluetooth Devices.” This will show you a list of all the previously paired Bluetooth devices.

8. Tap on “Pair a New Device.” This will initiate the pairing process.

9. Your Alexa device will start searching for nearby Bluetooth devices. Make sure your Bluetooth device is still in pairing mode and within range of your Alexa device.

10. Once your Bluetooth device is detected, it will appear in the list of available devices on the Alexa app. Tap on your Bluetooth device to select it.

11. Follow any additional on-screen prompts or instructions that may appear to complete the pairing process. This may involve entering a passcode or confirming the connection on both your Alexa device and the Bluetooth device.

12. Once the pairing is successful, you will receive a confirmation message on the Alexa app, and your Bluetooth device should now be connected to your Alexa device.

It’s worth noting that not all Alexa devices support Bluetooth connectivity. Ensure that your specific Alexa device model has Bluetooth capabilities before attempting to pair it with a Bluetooth device.

I hope this detailed guide helps you turn on your Alexa Bluetooth and successfully pair it with your desired Bluetooth device. If you encounter any issues or have further questions, feel free to ask!
