How to Download Bluetooth Software

By Christopher Tebbutt

Bluetooth was created in 1994 and is a software application which allows you to transfer files between Bluetooth-enabled electrical devices which are paired together. Although data can only be transferred over short distances, Bluetooth's main innovation is a wireless transferring process. So, rather than having to connect your devices together using USB cables or other wiring, data is transmitted over a secure local radio network. Bluetooth networks are used primarily to share files between cell phones, computers, digital cameras and fax machines. Most devices have built-in Bluetooth capabilities, but downloading Bluetooth software is straightforward if your device does not.

Download Bluetooth Software

Step 1

Turn on your computer or other Internet-enabled device and visit the Bluetooth Product Zone website to decipher what Bluetooth software you require (if necessary).

Step 2

Download the required Bluetooth software onto your device from a third-party website. Such websites usually offer the software for free. There are numerous websites which make Bluetooth software available to download, including Brothersoft, Software Geek and Broadcom.

Step 3

Follow the software program's installation instructions to successfully install Bluetooth on to your device. Once the software has been installed, you can turn it on in your device's "Settings," "Tools" or "Bluetooth" menu and begin sharing data with other connected devices.

Tips & Warnings

  • Ensure that the Bluetooth software you are downloading is compatible with your device. Relevant technical information can be found on the Bluetooth Product Zone website or from the software download description on a third-party website.
