Bluetooth is a short-range, wireless method for two different devices to talk. This is how your phone talks with your car to play music and take phone calls. Bluetooth is different from WiFi. WiFi is typically for connecting computers or mobile devices with each other and the internet. Bluetooth is what’s known as AdHoc, meaning there’s no device in between like a Wireless Access Point.

Think of Bluetooth as a conversation between two people who speak the same language, WiFi is a conversation between two people who need an interpreter.
