Hey, Mi Fans!
There's no chance that you haven't heard about this word - "Bluetooth". You have it in your phone and you use it whenever you need it whether to connect to your wireless headphones or earphones, or smart devices like Mi band or to Bluetooth speakers. Bluetooth is used in almost all major consumer products, including phones, tablets, laptops, headphones, speakers, TVs, and video game consoles because it can do so many things from playing audio from one source to a speaker to transferring files from one device to another.
