Add Bluetooth to your Windows or Linux computer and open the door to cordless convenience with Bluetooth headsets, headphones and speakers, along with Bluetooth mice, keyboards, and other devices.
Bluetooth 4.0 allows connection with recent Bluetooth Low Energy ("BLE" or "Bluetooth Smart") devices like Fitbit fitness trackers, iBeacons, and the latest generation of mice and keyboards. (BLE devices not supported in Windows 7 and earlier. Fitbit requires the Fitbit Windows 10 app).
Works with 32- and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, & Windows 10. Supports recent versions of popular Linux distributions like Ubuntu, Mint, and Fedora. (* Linux kernel versions 3.0.34, 3.2.20, and 3.4 and later).
Works with all Raspberry Pi models with Raspbian or Ubuntu Mate, including the new Raspberry Pi Zero. (Does not work with Windows IoT Core on the Raspberry Pi)
Linux computers may need additional software and setup, and may not support all Bluetooth profiles. Specialized or minimal Linux versions may not have Bluetooth support built into the kernel, and might not work without significant configuration. Many Linux distributions do not use the latest versions of BlueZ and Pulseaudio, which can create compatibility problems with devices unless those components, and the kernel, are updated.
