This step remains identical for both iOS and Android. Next, go to the device Settings app and look for the Bluetooth menu option. When inside, you will find a list of connected, previously paired, and new devices list. In that list, find your speaker’s make and name and select it to pair.

Difference between Wi-Fi and Bluetooth speakers?

This might seem complicated but is actually very simple. Bluetooth speakers are generally non-smart speakers that need a host device, like your phone, to source audio from. You connect your phone to a Bluetooth speaker and play music from your phone which is then relayed to the speaker. The music is actually being played on your phone using the resources of your device.

On the flip side, Wi-Fi speakers are generally smart and can much more independently than a Bluetooth speaker. Wi-Fi connectivity allows such speakers to stay connected with the internet for sourcing the music independently and for app connectivity.

Once you have sent the song from your phone to the speaker, it will pull the music directly from the internet. Closing the music app on your phone or turning off the phone entirely won’t even affect the music playback on a Wi-Fi speaker.

The speaker supports Bluetooth 4.1, which admittedly is a bit outdated, as newer speakers have Bluetooth 5.0 support. The speaker does make up for it by its excellent build quality. The speaker has an IPX6 water resistant rating, which means it is spill proof and can withstand jets of water.

How to reset a Bluetooth speaker?

If you’re facing any connection problem with your Bluetooth speaker then resetting can solve any such issue. First, you should try for a soft reset, which simply means restarting the speaker. Most basic issues should be solved with this.

For a hard reset, many popular speaker models come with a pinhole. You need to insert a small pinhead inside it to push the hard-reset button. This should revert all the speaker settings to what they were when the speaker was new.
