Though more than a year into it, the pandemic still impacts many aspects of our lives, from the way we shop to the way we work to how we share information. Thankfully, members of the Bluetooth® community continue to innovate and share new technologies across the industry despite pandemic-related challenges.

Since transitioning to a virtual event platform, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has participated in a wide range of presentations and webinars designed to help communicate advancements in Bluetooth technology.

Here’s a look back at some of the top Bluetooth virtual event presentations from the past year.
