Connect A Bluetooth Speaker to The Nexus 7

Here’s a quick ‘how to’ guide on how to connect a Bluetooth speaker to a Nexus 7. Don’t fret if your device deviates from the 2013 Nexus 7 model – the process will be similar on other Android 4.3+ devices

Step One: Unbox and admire your shiny, new Bluetooth Speaker. In this instance, I’m looking at a Xenta 4-04EBY (AKA the Xenta Beatbar) A snap at just £29.99 (~€36). Other models are available but I just happen to like the portability of this particular one. Here are some added benefits;


  • Wirelessly stream audio from any Bluetooth device within 33 feet
  • Hands-free call answer/end button
  • Built-in microphone with noise-cancellation
  • Volume control buttons
  • 3.5mm Audio in port
  • Power indicator light
  • Charges via USB to give 5-7 hours of playback
  • Ultra Bass Booster Passive Radiator Subwoofer (great sound)
  • Auto-search and auto-reconnect with any compatible device





Step Two: Switch on your speaker.

Step Three: Navigate to settings on your Nexus 7.


Step Four:  Activate Bluetooth.



Step Five: Select your speaker from the list of available devices and wait for it to connect.
