I need to connect to WiFi and Bluetooth at the same time using an RPi 3B+. Is it possible or will one connection drop out or be very substandard while using the other?

  • Yes, it is posssible without any problen, Commented Jul 20, 2018 at 14:11
  • Thanks, because I read that it was not so perhaps that was an earlier version. I am asking because many chips that do both bluetooth and WiFi cannot do them simultaneously but are just capable of doing both but only one or the other at a time. Do you know if the RPi 3B+ able to do this because of the chip firmware or are they able to do this because they have added something external to the chip?

  • I didn't went so deep. But I use it every day for testing Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth LE features. RPi connected to my network through WiFi. Both (Bluetooth and WiFi) works perfect (especially because I use VNC to control Raspberry). Commented Jul 20, 2018 at 18:46

Yes, the RPi3B+ works fine with wifi and Bluetooth together. In fact, I am currently using a Rii wifi mini-keyboard, a Logitech wifi mouse and a iRulu Bluetooth mini-keyboard on my RPi3B+, simultaneously.


Both are independent functions of your Raspberry Pi, both can work at the same time.

  • The question has exactly the same answer half a year before.
