Bluetooth pairing not successful?

A lot of factors can hinder smartphones from pairing with other Bluetooth devices. Among the widely known hindrances include system incompatibility, proximity, random firmware glitches, as well as environmental factors.

Should you encounter any sort of error while attempting to pair your Google Pixel 7 with other Bluetooth devices, be sure to look into the basics. Make sure that both devices are turned on and have Bluetooth function enabled so that they’re discoverable. Also verify if the devices are compatible. 

Performing basic tweaks to eliminate common software glitches that might have hindered your devices from pairing can also help. Among the proven workaround is the Airplane mode trick, that’s carried out by turning the Airplane mode on and off. 

Forgetting and re-adding Bluetooth devices is also an effective solution should the error be attributed to an existing Bluetooth connection that’s corrupted.

Restoring the default network configurations on the phone through a network settings reset can also be considered among other potential solutions.

Also ensure that your devices’ software are up-to-date. And don’t forget to restart your devices too.
