Set up a Bluetooth audio device to work with Mac
Bluetooth® is a wireless technology that allows your Mac and devices to communicate without using cables.
To use a Bluetooth audio device such as a headset or speakers, you must first connect the device with your Mac, then select the device as your input or output device.
Set up a Bluetooth audio device
Make sure the device is turned on and discoverable.
If you can’t turn on the device or make it discoverable, see the instructions that came with the device.

Hold the pointer over the device in the list on the right, then click Connect.
If the device doesn’t automatically connect, follow the onscreen instructions to set up the device.
You can also connect a Bluetooth device to your Mac by clicking the Bluetooth status icon in the menu bar and choosing the device. If the icon isn’t in the menu bar, you can add it using Control Center settings.
