When to Forget Bluetooth Devices?
Forgetting a Bluetooth device does more than just deleting the device from the Bluetooth directory. In fact, this has been proven to help fix random Bluetooth connectivity issues in many Android phones including Google Pixel devices. This is often the case when your phone encounters unexpected Bluetooth pairing errors tied to some sort of conflicts with any of the saved devices.
It turns out that forgetting the suspected Bluetooth device also eradicates the underlying cause and thereby fixes the problem.
This process does not affect your existing Bluetooth settings and other Bluetooth connection preferences.
You can always pair your Pixel phone to any of the deleted Bluetooth devices for as long as they’re turned on, discoverable, active and within range.
And that’s how you delete a saved Bluetooth device using the Forget Bluetooth command on the Google Pixel 7 smartphone.
