How to connect AirPods to PS4

Apple AirPods are a fantastic accessory that work flawlessly with your iPhone, Macbook, iPad and other devices, but why is it such a struggle to connect them to my PS4 or my PS4 Pro? Unfortunately that’s because the PS4 has a couple of missing features, one of them being the ability to connect any Bluetooth headsets or earphones, with only a very small selection of officially licensed options working at all.

Thankfully there’s a cheap accessory to solve this and allow you to connect your AirPods / AirPods Pro to your PlayStation 4: the PS4 Wireless Bluetooth Dongle.

  2. Wait for the Dongle to flash blue, indicating pairing mode is available.
  3. Open the AirPod’s case.
  4. Press and hold the pairing button at the back of the charging case.
  5. Your AirPods will now pair with your PS4, indicated by a solid blue light on the dongle.
  6. Insert the Microphone adapter into your PS4 controller’s 3.5mm port.
  7. Your PS4 will then display a message confirming this connection.
  8. Your Airpods will now be fully connected allowing you to listen and talk through your Apple AirPods while you game.

How to connect Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus to your TV

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus has an amazing 6.8″ AMOLED Infinity O Display, but you may want the option to view content on your Large Screen TV. The Note 10 Plus allows you to connect to your TV, Monitor and even Projector for movie nights. Luckily you can do this wired or wireless, whichever method you prefer. Read on to find out how in our easy guide.

1. Use an Official Samsung USB-C to HDMI Adapter

The Official Samsung USB-C to HDMI adapter is one of the easiest ways to connect your Note 10 Plus to your TV. Connect the USB-C into the phone and the HDMI to the TV. On your TV, change to the correct HDMI source and you’re ready to start enjoying Movies, Photos and games on a much larger display.

2. Use Samsung’s DeX for the full desktop PC experience

Samsung also have DeX Station Dock, which allows you to connect a monitor, keyboard and mouse, and also turns on a special desktop mode for the Note 10 Plus. This lets you have multiple apps open in windows, see the desktop versions of websites, and generally use your Note 10 Plus exactly like you would a desktop PC. If you want to get work done on your Note 10 Plus — or even make the Note 10 Plus your only computing device — this is the way to do it!

3. Use third-party USB-C to HDMI adapters

While Samsung’s USB-C adapter is the one of the best supported methods, you can use third party adapters that will do the same job. One Option we’ve found is the Goobay USB-C to HDMI Adapter, it supports 4K resolution as well as Full HD and you can still connect your Note 10 Plus to your TV as normal. If you want to have a look at other alternatives then take a look at our full range of USB-C  to HDMI Adapters to see what’s best for you.

4.  Stream using a Google Chromecast

The Chromecast is arguably the easiest way to connect your Note 10 Plus to your TV.  All you need to do is plug your Chromecast into the HDMI port in the TV, connect to the same Wifi Network that your Note 10 Plus is on, using the Google Home App. Then you’re ready to stream YouTube Videos, play your Spotify tunes or just mirror your Note 10 Plus’ display to your TV.

5. Use Miracast for a Wireless Connection

The Note 10 Plus also supports Miracast, allowing you to connect to compatible smart TVs without needing a cable or wired adapter. You will be limited to 1080p resolutions at 30 frames per second, so you might consider a wired alternative if you need higher frame-rate or resolution. To get personalised instructions on setting up Miracast on your TV, search online for the name of your TV and “Miracast” or “screen mirroring”. Good luck!

With these five methods, you should be able to find the best method for your situation. If you found this helpful or you have any further questions, let us know in the comments below or write to us on Twitter @mobilefun or Facebook!
