Bixi can be used to control powerpoint presentations, PDFs, etc and control music on PC/Mac. 

Currently the feature to flip Bixi to work with PC/Mac is available in Android App and iOS support will come soon. 

 

Here are the steps -

1. In Bixi Settings -> Enable 'Browse mode' -> Bixi will restart with a different name "BIXI_BROWSE"

2. Go to Android Bluetooth Setting -> Unpair old Bixi (Bixi_XXXX or Bixi_browse if its name is already changed)

3. Simply scan from PC/Mac bluetooth for Bixi and connect to it. Left profile is for Browsing Right profile is for Music.

 

If you wish to use browsing mode for Android/iOS phones & tablets ->

1. After step 2 above, from System Bluetooth settings, connect to 'BIXI_BROWSE'. Left profile is for Browsing & Right profile is for Music.

 

To get back to Normal mode (Bixi_XXXX) ->

1. If connected to PC/Mac/iOS, disable bluetooth, and scan for Bixi from Android App

2. Go to Bixi Settings -> Disable 'Browse mode' -> Bixi will restart as normal Bixi. 

3. Go to Android Bluetooth Setting -> Unpair old Bixi (Bixi_browse or Bixi_XXXX if its name is already changed)

6. In android bluetooth settings, Click scan and connect to Bixi_XXXX. The android app will then auto-connect. 

If not, then scan from android app for a new bixi and connect back to Bixi_XXXX. 

 

Note: in "BIXI_BROWSE" mode, on some Android phones, the on-screen keyboard may not appear. 

 

 

Let us know if this is working well at your end. 

Cheers

Hello 

I just received Bixi, tried on Android on Deezer, works fine,

I tried to do the procedure you said because I want to pair it on my computer for slide sharing and passing them and control more my computer on Windows 10.

I do not find the Bixi Setting with enable Bixi Browse (I tried to swith the interface to English in case, cannot find how too)

Do you have a guide with maybe print screen and how to and what are the possibility on a computer PC / MAC available

 

Thanks

Hi,

I would like to know how to use it with Windows 7, once I have it paired.

I have a problem with drivers. It stars pairing by bluetooth and installing drivers, but finally this one is no correct:
Bluetooth peripheral device -> No driver found

When I select brouwser I get an error, Coming Soon on my iPhone.

Why is there no Windows software so you can use it easy with PowerPoint.

 

Cannot use it with Powerpoint right now 🙁

Hi, 

 

It is available on Android App to switch to browser mode. 

iOS support will come in some time. 

Sorry, we don't plan to develop a PC software for now.

Hi, 

 

It works with PowerPoint, pdf, etc.. No issues with that. 

 

To get to that mode - 'Bixi_Browse', currently the Android app has the option to switch bixi_xxxx to bixi_browse which you can then use with your PC or Mac. 

 

We will soon add this option in IOS app to switch bixi to Bixi_browse and then you can use it on Pc.

I have a problem with drivers. It starts pairing by bluetooth correctly and installing drivers, but finally this one is no correct:
Bluetooth peripheral device -> No driver found

 

What can I do? do you have any additional drivers? any solution? please, help us to make it work properly.

I can't use it with mi Windows computer until the driver is working fine.

Hi, 

 

It means that your PC doesn't  have the bluetooth 4.0+ protocol. Best way is to get a Bluetooth LE dongle that comes for 6-7$ and use that as the bluetooth adapter.

Unfortunately Older PCs don't have good bluetooth 4.0+ support.

Could you recommend (by private if you prefer) one of them that you've been tested with? mine is 4.0 version...

I succeeded to make it works on windows 10.

but I have a bug.

I reproduced it ... i was playing on it with presentation on PPT, and after one moment the center point colored not in blue, not in green, but in a kind of orange red yellow color after this. Bixi is unsable on windows unless you forgot the blue tooth device and re link it .

Is there a better procedure pain less, specially when you present it and all your colleague are laughing at you 🙂
