When it comes to using Google messages, sometimes you might want to use the device pairing feature but what is device pairing in Google messages anyways? Let’s find out what it is and how it can be set up on your phone or computer.
The process of pairing is necessary for Bluetooth devices to mutually register information in order to connect wirelessly.
To establish a Bluetooth connection, you will need your Bluetooth device to be paired.
There is no need to connect the same devices again because the pairing information is kept even when the devices are switched off.
Connections are not automatically established when conducting device pairing. Rather, connections are made via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity APIs. Furthermore, linking a companion device does not permit continuous scanning.
