Bluetooth tethering

Hi guys, I’m very excited for this phone, it looks exactly like what I need. The problem is that as a university student, I do most of my work on a tablet, and once in a while I find necessary to look up information on the internet. Since this is a priority for me, I’d like to know if this phone has a blutetooth tethering function. I know it can act as a hotspot via USB cable, but this would only work with a laptop, not a tablet.
If it wasn’t for this I would have already backed your project, you are making a great contibution to people who want to join the attention resistance

I feel it depends on the tablet, it should work; I’m excited to see what reply the technical team has for this.

Thanks for getting in touch @alessio_17! Our desktop app can be installed on Windows, MacOS or Linux operating systems, which is necessary to use the tethering functionality., whether it’s tethering via USB or Bluetooth. However, I have spoken to the team and they’ve informed me that they are still working on this so I can’t confirm anything.

If there are any further updates in terms of Bluetooth to tablet tethering, I will let you know.

Hi,

thank you for your posts.

We are still working on that. This is on our core feature list so even if somehow we don’t have it for the release - we will add it in an update. But as of today we are still aiming to include this feature in the first release.

Let’s leave this thread open and I will update you once I have more news on this topic.

Have a great week!

Do we have any updates on Bluetooth tethering at this point?

Wait, what? Is this true? It doesn’t use any kind of standard (so that it can work on, for example, tablets)?

@sandra- I will tag @Wojciech_Cichon in this post so he can help answer this question.

The thing is that tethering will work through USB without Mudita Center, HOWEVER we give no guarantees as to how it will work with tablets or other mobile devices.

I’m already on an old dumbphone; one of the huge “upgrades” of switching to something like Mudita (or competitor) would be to be able to tether / hotspot, since my current dumbphone can’t do that. To be able to do email or similar while travelling.

So would that work with a USB C cable between the Pure and a tablet or whatever, then?

Would also like to know this. While bluetooth is indeed annoying it is a standard for internet tethering between every standard device: mac, windows, linux, iphone, android…. whatever. it would be a shame if you failed to implement this feature for internet connectivity—this is the thing that would allow us to use the mudita as a phone and as a (weak) data source. We can carry additional devices for our must-have apps like maps and chat

@Sid_C I will check the options for this & I will get back to you.

I can Bluetooth tether with my current android phone but it’s not anywhere near as fast, doesn’t charge my phone at the same and uses more battery from both the phone and the device it’s tethered to. I find it much simpler to plug in a cable.

I could understand supporting wifi hotspotting as I do use that sometimes but the hardware just isn’t in the pure.

@parawizard Bluetooth tethering is not really ideal. I prefer the cable way as well.

bluetooth tethering is really just wanted for small devices. For example, to connect a smartphone or tablet for minimal internet while traveling or on the train. The cable is definitely superior, but sometimes it would be nice to have a slow wireless connection (and the only way to connect an ipad AFAIK)
