Find out in the video how to turn GS2 into Bluetooth speakers and how to connect GS2 to external Bluetooth speakers or headphones.
It depends on the internet service bandwidth provided by the Wi-Fi router as well as how many competing wireless devices in the environment. If stuttering occurs during projection, please check if Wi-Fi is working properly or it is combusted.
GS2 has both 2.4G and 5G channels. We'd recommend switching both your home Wi-Fi router and GS2 to 5G channel for smoother connections.
Besides WLAN mode, GS2 also offers 2 types of wireless projection:
1. Use Mobile as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn on Wi-fi Hotspot on your iPhone or Android phone, connect GS2 to it and start the wireless projection.
2. Use GS2 as the Wifi Hotspot: Turn the Wifi Hotspot on GS2 and connect your mobile to it and start the wireless projection. To note, your mobile won't be able to connect to the external network via your 4G cellular network and only can stream pictures or video stored in your mobile to GS2.
Unlike LCDs, mobiles, and tablets which emit blue light, projectors project light, and the images projected onto the wall or screen curtain get into the eyes with less stimulation and damage to the eyes.
Equipped with Eye-Protection Sensor, GS2 will shut down the LED light automatically to prevent the strong light from entering the eyes in case that curious kids peep into the lens.
What's more, GS2 is IPX2 splash-proof and 0.5 m drop-proof and has a magnetic detachable power cord. Your kids can play indoors as well as outdoors carefreely without safety concerns.
