My Droid will not connect to the Droids app

Updated 5 months ago by mike moran

Prior to troubleshooting, if you have never connected to your Droid, first ensure that you are using a compatible device: Droids app device compatibility.

If you're using a compatible device, double-check that your device has Bluetooth enabled -- if you're using an Android device, also enable Location Services. Our Star Wars App-Enabled Droids utilize Bluetooth 4.0 to create a connection to your device, so no pairing through the Bluetooth menu is necessary. Simply launch the app and hold your device close to your Droid and follow the on-screen instructions. Follow the link for more details on connecting a Droid to the Droids app

If your connection issue persists, try the following steps: 

  1. Uninstall the Star Wars Droids App by Sphero 
  2. Restart your device 
  3. Reinstall the app
  4. Ensure Bluetooth is enabled (Location Services too for Android users), and you have a strong WiFi connection
  5. Launch app with device close to your fully charged Droid 

How did we do?
