The Ledger Live app for smartphones can now be downloaded. Those with a Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue can currently use the app in consultation mode.
Ledger is excited to announce that the highly anticipated Ledger Live mobile phone application is now available. This allows Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue users to view their balances by scanning a LiveQR code presented on the Ledger Live desktop version. Currently featured in consultation mode, the app enables you to check the value of your crypto assets anywhere you go.
Thanks to the mobile app, you will be able to wirelessly transact everywhere with the Ledger Nano X. In the future, Ledger Nano S users (Android smartphones only) will be able to transact as well through the use of an OTG cable. We are working on having the same features for the Ledger Live mobile app as the desktop version.
The Ledger Live smartphone app is compatible on iOS 9+ or Android Lollipop (7 and above) operating systems or higher.
Ledger Nano X: Bluetooth Enabled
The Ledger Nano X will be able to connect to both Android and iOS smartphones using Bluetooth. Along with the newly released Ledger Live application, this will allow you to connect to your smartphone without the need of a cable. The Bluetooth connection will be established through pairing – this enables a secure connection.
As the security of your crypto assets are of utmost importance to us, we paid great attention to the security of the Bluetooth communication. You can read more about this here.
With the combination of the Ledger Live smartphone app and the Ledger Nano X, you will be able to manage your crypto assets. Not only that, but installing applications and updating your device’s firmware will be possible, everywhere you go.
Ledger Nano S: OTG connected
Ledger Nano S users can equally make use of the Ledger Live mobile app. Currently this is in a consultation mode, with a full version being in the works. This full version would, however, be only available to Android users, as the connection can only be established through the use of an OTG cable. Due to technical limitations, this is currently not possible for iOS users. The consultation mode can be activated by scanning a LiveQR code on the Ledger Live desktop app, which allows you to check your balances at any given time.
We are excited to bring mobility to both of these Ledger devices. Through the Ledger Live mobile app, you can keep your crypto assets secure, everywhere you go.
