car, this Bluetooth technology can enable you to use your phone without engaging your
hands. This means you don't have to hold your phone in your hands but can answer a call,
play music, perform other functions can access your contacts, etc. Nowadays, every
standard car has a Bluetooth feature installed. A Bluetooth enabled car works similar to a
Bluetooth headphone. It allows you to stream your favorite podcasts or tunes, thus
eliminating the need to insert CDs or operate internet radios, etc.
Now this Bluetooth technology that is gradually becoming a standard for every car isn't
compatible with every device. Not just that, the system, features, and interface of the
Bluetooth mechanism varies from model to model. If you are willing to check whether your
handset and your car's Bluetooth system are compatible, we have listed below a guide.
Following the steps mentioned above, you can play Bluetooth music in the car and confirm
that both are compatible.
How to play music inside a car using Bluetooth
In the steps mentioned below, you will come to know how can you pair your handset with
