Connecting via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

July 17, 2021 in News

The latest version of Remote Mouse supports connecting computers via Bluetooth. Under most circumstances, we still recommend to use Wifi to connect. Because Wifi generally has better stability, hardware compatibility and signal coverage than Bluetooth.

When there is no Wifi available, or there is a lag in using Remote Mouse, you can use Bluetooth connection instead. In this case, Bluetooth may better resist the lag caused by poor signals.

At present, there are some limitations in the functions when connecting via Bluetooth, but we will gradually improve them.

Secondly, there are certain hardware requirements for computers to connect with Bluetooth. For Windows, Bluetooth connection is supported only on Windows 10 Creators Update (version 1703) or newer. And the PC must have Bluetooth built-in.

If your PC uses external Bluetooth (a USB Bluetooth dongle), only the model BT851 by Laird can support Bluetooth connection.

As for Mac, except for some old models, the common Mac computers can support Bluetooth connection perfectly.

To use the latest Advanced Connectivity feature, please make sure that both the desktop and the mobile versions of Remote Mouse are up to date. 😉
