Yes. Bluetooth can be and is used for file sharing. There are many apps already available which make use of Bluetooth for file sharing.

Bluetooth mesh is an m:m device communication network primarily used for creating IoT solutions. This mesh network uses Bluetooth LE which is designed for short burst connections and many to many messaging amongst devices. It cannot be used for audio streaming or file transfers.

I would also like ask if Bluetooth Modules like the Blue Gecko BGM13P are used by soldering it to a PCB board or can I use a sort of header connector to hold the Bluetooth Module securely. the link is here:silabs.com/products/wireless/bluetooth/… \$\endgroup\$ Apr 22, 2019 at 11:04
