    Here you can see other devices that are nearby and available. If the circle is spinning at the top, Bluetooth is scanning. The HTC One M8 is currently looking for other available devices. Whether it finds something or not is another matter. I'm going to enable a second device to see if the phone will find it.

    As you can see, the phone has found "iPhone". Unfortunately, iPhone doesn't really play nice with other phones, so you can't do much with Bluetooth.
