Bluetooth communication

Bluetooth 5.0 is the latest version of the Bluetooth wireless communication standard. It’s commonly used for wireless headphones and other audio hardware, as well as wireless keyboards, mice, and game controllers. Bluetooth is also used for communication between various smart home and Internet of Things (IoT) device.

StudioSipa Uses Bluetooth 5 Improvements

The benefits of Bluetooth 5, as we mention above, are threefold: range, speed, and bandwidth. The wireless range of Bluetooth 5 maxes out at 120 meters, compared to 30 meters for Bluetooth v4.2. This increase in range, plus the ability to transmit audio to two devices, means that people could send audio to multiple rooms in a house, create a stereo effect in one space, or share audio between two sets of headphones. The extended range also helps it better communicate the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem (i.e. smart devices that connect to the internet).

Another area in which Bluetooth 5 adds improvement is with Beacon technology, in which businesses, such as retail can beam messages to nearby potential customers with deal offers or advertisements. Depending on how you feel about ads, this is either a good thing or a bad thing, but you can opt out of this functionality by turning off location services and checking app permissions for retail stores. Beacon technology can also facilitate navigation indoors, such as in an airport or shopping mall (who hasn’t gotten lost in either of these locations?), and make it easier for warehouses to track inventory. The Bluetooth SIG reports that more than 371 million beacons will ship by 2020.

 

To take advantage of Bluetooth 5, you’ll need a compatible device. Your 2016 or older model phone can’t upgrade to this version of Bluetooth. Smartphone manufacturers started adopting Bluetooth 5 in 2017 with the iPhone 8iPhone X, and Samsung Galaxy S8. Expect to see it in your next high-end smartphone; lower-end phones will lag behind in adoption. Other Bluetooth 5 devices to look out for include tablets, headphones, speakers, and smart home devices.
