LG might be the brand with the most Bluetooth-enabled TVs. They offer Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity on almost every TV they sell.
Bluetooth on LG TVs?
The following LG TV series are compatible with Bluetooth: OLED (QNED MiniLED), NanoCell, NanoCell, and 4K Ultra. Go to Settings > Sound > Bluetooth > Bluetooth, then select the device you wish to enable Bluetooth on your LG TV. If you don’t have pairing enabled, your device won’t show up!
How to enable Bluetooth in your LG TV
Before we go into the steps necessary to get Bluetooth working on your TV, please make sure your device is in pairing mode.
This may sound obvious, but it is surprising how many people encounter this problem.
Because they have never used pairing mode, they don’t see the sound-bar or headphones in the Bluetooth dropdown menu.
To get your device into pairing mode, each device will require something different. For example, Air-pods require that you press and hold the button until the white light blinks.
The pairing process for most other devices is similar.
Now that your device has entered pairing mode, you can enable Bluetooth on your LG TV by following these steps:
1)Click on Settings. Click on the gear icon if your remote has one. You might need to click Menu first, then navigate to Settings.
2)Select Advanced Settings.
3)Navigate to the sound menu, then choose sound Out.
4)Choose Bluetooth Devices.
5)To pair your device, choose from the following list
After you enable Bluetooth, it may take a while before you can hear your audio.
This is because your TV sends a Bluetooth signal to connect with the internet. Don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear any sound the next time your TV is turned on.
The LG Easy Bluetooth Connection Guide is a great tool to connect your Bluetooth device and your TV.
