How To Bluetooth MP3s to Your Phone

This will not work if you do not have Bluetooth capabilities on both your phone and your computer. I would also recommend that you use audio software to minimize your MP3 so that it is between 5-40 seconds long – putting the entire song on your phone will take up a lot of space. Also, be sure to do a save, as when saving the MP3, so you do not save over the original MP3 file. 

Now, let’s get started.

  1. Right-click on the MP3 you want to send to your phone.
  2. Choose the “to Bluetooth” option from the dropdown choices.
  3. Another drop-down option will appear with a list of Bluetooth devices to which you can send the MP3.
  4. Choose your phone from the list. If you do not see your phone listed, you will need to:
    • Make sure your Bluetooth phone is set to discoverable or is in find me mode. (This is done on most phones by going to your settings and/or connections.)
    • Once your phone is set to discoverable/find me mode, then choose the “choose other devices option” from the drop-down on your computer.
    • The computer will start a search and will most likely find your phone. It could also find other nearby Bluetooth devices.
    • Select your phone from the list of found devices. When you select your phone for the first time, you may have to enter a passkey on your phone and then on your computer. Once you have selected your phone, you are ready to continue to the next step.
  5. A pop-up will appear on your computer showing the process status of your download.
  6. When the download is complete, another pop-up message will appear on your computer saying that your file transfer was successful (or unsuccessful).
  7. You should now be able to go to your sounds on your phone and find the song in the list.
