Connect to multiple Bluetooth devices with Multipoint

A fair few Bluetooth headsets and car kits these days say they support Multipoint technology. It sounds useful, but what does it actually do?

Essentially, Multipoint is a new development in Bluetooth technology that allows your headset to connect to two devices at the same time. If either receives a call, then it’s automatically put through.

This can be really useful in a number of situations:

  • If you’ve got a work and personal mobile, you can make and receive calls from either on just one Bluetooth headset.
  • If you’re in the car with your friends or family, you can connect both phones to the Bluetooth car kit.
  • If you’re expecting a call but want to listen to music, you can pair with your phone and your MP3 player and be sure that your music will be paused when a call comes in.
