Bluetooth devices battery level

First Poster

Hi all,

 

I am using Samsung Galaxy S7 and just wondering is there any way to find connected Bluetooth devices battery level in S7 like as Apple iPhone do.

 

I have tried many apps which are rubbish as they are kind of counter rather showing an actual picture of the Bluetooth devices status.

Hi,
Yeah it varies on what you are using and what you have connected (e.g IconX you can find out via the gear menu)

 

What is it your trying to find out?

Hi Andy,

 

Thanks for your reply, I'm using Bluetooth earphones which last for about couple of hours active use, as I'm don't use it constantly for a couple of hours the battery level drains randomly and eventually the earphones shutdown unexpectedly.

 

Therefore, I was just wondering, is there any way I could track the battery level of that earphones would have been the ideal solution. I have seen on of my friend using Apple iPhone which showing battery level for any connected Bluetooth device to the iPhone.

 

Are there any apps for android which can do this rather the countdown apps which are available in google play store, perhaps a stock app?

Ah right I see your problem, no there isn't a way I don't think there is a way, when the volume lowers you should just bare that in mind that the battery will die within x amount of time.

Hi, 

I got a S9, and I was also looking for the BT Batt Status in the notification bar above, like I used to have it in my old LG G4. After a little while looking for a solution away from those third party apps, I found that the information about battery status for bluetooth devices is shown with the SmartThing (former Samsung Connect) phone feature.

Just need to start the service in the phone, it will detect the devices, and everytime you connect the headseats, for example, it will show it in the pull down notification drawer, along with some other control menu option. 

So basically, the Samsung will show the battery status for bluetooth devices, but a little different than what other phones and the iPhone do.

Yes i found a solution.

 

My Huawei showed bluetooth battery power on status bar. But never seen it on a Samsung.

 

Until this morning on my Galaxy S10 i went to the bluetooth menu and it shows my earphones have 90% remaining.

I accidentally turned off SmartThings on my status bar! How do I get that back on my Galaxy S10e?!
