Bluetooth is one of the most popular methods for sharing data between a mobile device and a computer, however many Bluetooth versions are not compatible, causing problems connecting and transferring files. While most Smartphones today support Bluetooth 4.0 or above, you won’t be able to transmit files unless your Windows 11/10 PC supports Bluetooth 4.0 or higher.
For those unfamiliar, Bluetooth 4.0 is an enhanced version of Bluetooth technology that maintains interoperability with other devices while enhancing the capability. Because it is supported by small battery-operated devices, it is sometimes known as a low-energy form of Bluetooth.
Not everyone is aware of their device’s Bluetooth profile version, which is quite significant. However, we can simply check the Bluetooth version manually, and there are certain applications that can assist you in checking the Bluetooth version on your Windows 11/10 PC.
