Connecting as a Client

Connecting Bluetooth as a Client


In today's video our topic is Connecting Bluetooth as a client.

In order to initiate a connection with the remote device (a device holding an open server socket), we must first obtain a BluetoothDevice object that represents the remote device. Then use the Bluetooth device to acquire Bluetooth socket and initiate the connection.

Using the Bluetoothdevice get a Bluetoothsocket by calling createRfcommSocketToServiceRecord(UUID). Initiate the connection by calling connect().

Example :

private class ConnectThread extends Thread {

private final BluetoothSocket mmSocket;

private final BluetoothDevice mmDevice;

public connectThread(BluetoothDevice device)


BluetoothSocket tmp=null;




catch (IOException e) { }



When you have successfully connected two (or more) devices, each one will have a connected Bluetooth socket. Now we can share data between devices using Bluetooth socket.
