Pixel 3 XL: Quickly Manage Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
Your Pixel 3 XL seems to be a pretty solid device, but there will always be some issues appearing out of the blue. Some of the problems are inherent in all smartphones, others appear in rare cases and a couple of them are simply unavoidable in the Pixel 3 and 3 XL in particular. That’s not though the case with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We’ve been reading comments and conducting our own testing for years to know that connectivity errors are common and normally easy to solve if you know how to quickly manage Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
Things are no different for your Pixel 3 XL smartphone. It might work perfect now, but you have to be ready for anything. After all, gone are the days when people are relying much on wirings and cables to connect one device to another and share the functionalities they love.
Today, with the advanced Bluetooth technology entrenched into high-powered gadgets like Android smartphones, people will just have to turn some settings on from their device menu and then start listening to favorite songs or watch movies on a bigger screen and not only through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Sometimes, users can’t get the connection to work, others report problems with specific apps, while certain Pixel owners are having issues with voice commands, but don’t be angry since it is actually happening to all of us at one point.
Here’s how to deal with such things instead:
Quickly Manage Bluetooth and Wi-Fi:
- For selecting a Wi-Fi network, you must first swipe down for Quick Settings;
- After that, you must press and hold the Wi-Fi icon. This will go directly to the Wi-Fi settings and something tells me that you will be there when you can’t figure out what’s going on with Wi-Fi;
- The same applies to Bluetooth as you must initially swipe down the Quick Settings shade;
- Up next, press and hold the Bluetooth icon. If you cannot connect to your car, you can instantly see what’s going on;
- As a tip, if music isn’t playing, then make sure you’re connected to the right device or car, and that music isn’t playing through another connected device. Also check that the volume is cranked up, so go to Settings > Connected devices > Bluetooth, then hit Settings next to the problem device or car and make sure the box next to Media audio is checked.
