Bluetooth is one of the widely used technology in recent days. Most of the gadgets that connects with other electronic devices first start with Bluetooth connectivity. Bluetooth is managed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. They recently announced about the next version of Bluetooth technology Bluetooth 5, which means manufacturers are now able to build it into their devices.
The next-generation Bluetooth standard offers longer range, faster speed, a larger broadcast message capacity, and better interoperability with other wireless technologies. Compared to existing Bluetooth 4.2 protocol, Bluetooth 5 offers four times the range, two times the speed, and eight times the broadcast message capacity, bringing whole home coverage and more reliable connections between connected devices. We can expect devices to adopt Bluetooth 5 within two to six months.
