Bluetooth Headset Detection for React Native

Getting started

$ npm install react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect --save

Mostly automatic installation

$ react-native link react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect

Manual installation


  1. In XCode, in the project navigator, right click LibrariesAdd Files to [your project's name]
  2. Go to node_modulesreact-native-bluetooth-headset-detect and add RNBluetoothHeadsetDetect.xcodeproj
  3. In XCode, in the project navigator, select your project. Add libRNBluetoothHeadsetDetect.a to your project's Build PhasesLink Binary With Libraries
  4. Run your project (Cmd+R)<


  1. Open up android/app/src/main/java/[...]/
  • Add import io.github.alexkorep.RNBluetoothHeadsetDetectPackage; to the imports at the top of the file
  • Add new RNBluetoothHeadsetDetectPackage() to the list returned by the getPackages() method
  1. Append the following lines to android/settings.gradle:
    include ':react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect'
    project(':react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, 	'../node_modules/react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect/android')
  2. Insert the following lines inside the dependencies block in android/app/build.gradle:
      compile project(':react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect')


With React hooks:

import useBluetoothHeadsetDetection from 'react-native-bluetooth-headset-detect';

const MyComponent = () => {
  const device = useBluetoothHeadsetDetection();
  return (
    <Text>Connected headset: {device}</Text>

Without React hooks:

import { NativeEventEmitter, NativeModules } from "react-native";

const BluetoothHeadsetDetectModule = NativeModules.RNBluetoothHeadsetDetect;
const bluetoothHeadsetDetectEmitter = new NativeEventEmitter(
bluetoothHeadsetDetectEmitter.addListener("onChange", ({ devices }) => {
  if (devices.length) {
    console.log("Connected device:", devices[0]);
  } else {
    console.log("No devices connected");
