    To access the Apps tray, you’ll need to swipe up from the bottom of the Home screen. There, you will see different app icons and shortcut controls.

Sharing Contact details via Bluetooth

Sharing contact information between Android smartphones over a Bluetooth connection is pretty straightforward for as long as the devices are compatible.

With Contact sharing enabled for the specific Bluetooth device, you can start sharing contact details at any time.

  • To share contact via Bluetooth in Pixel 7, navigate to the Home Screen then swipe up to view all apps. Tap Contacts then select a contact that you’d like to share details. When the contact is selected, tap on the Menu icon represented by three dots at the top of the screen then tap Share to proceed. Select Bluetooth from the given sharing options then tap to select the Bluetooth device that you’d like to share or send the selected contact details to.

Make sure that your devices are already paired and discoverable. To complete the transfer, the recipient device must accept the file (contact details).

Keeping the device software up-to-date is also recommended to ensure all connectivity features are updated and working as intended.

And that’s how you configure the Google Pixel 7 to share contact details over a Bluetooth connection.
