How to use the Nespresso’s WiFi and Bluetooth Features (Explained!)

Imagine your morning routine. The sound of the alarm shakes you awake, and it’s time to start the day. This probably includes having breakfast, getting ready for work, and the most important part of all: the coffee

That last part can feel like a chore. Being groggy and half-asleep does not mix well with fiddling around with some contraption first thing in the morning. I recall at least a few occasions where I did all the steps and then forgot to put the capsule into the machine. A nice glass of plain hot water awaited me. Definitely not the best way to start my day! 

Luckily, there’s a way to avoid this, and let Nespresso take care of the difficult work. No more cups of plain old hot water by accident!

Nespresso has recently launched an upgrade to their newest coffee machines – with Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. But why is this? What is it for? And, how do on earth do we use it?

Let’s take a look!

  • How can I connect to my coffee machine?

What features does the Nespresso app provide?

There is a wide variety of perks for having the Nespresso app installed and up-to-date on your devices. One of the key highlights is that the machine will let you know when you’re almost out of coffee. It can also provide notifications for when the water tank is almost empty.

That’s not all—The Nespresso app has instructional videos in it, and even notifies you of new flavors that are available. New flavors come out periodically, so it’s always important to check the app to see what’s new.

If you love your Nespresso but want some extras for it, the app has that covered too. The Nespresso app shows what accessories are available for your machine, and how to order them, all from the app.

The Nespresso app provides the following features:

  • Alerts and Alarms
    • General operating issues with the machine
    • Water tank level
    • Descaling alerts
  • Performing remote software updates
  • Machine Assistance Videos
  • Machine’s serial number
  • Perform a factory reset via the app
  • Delete the machine

How To Connect To Your Nespresso Machine (Step-By-Step Guide)

  1. To get started with using the Vertuo Next Deluxe, it is recommended to first download the app onto any device that uses the App Store or Google Play Store. The features in the app will be discussed later, but it is a good idea to have it already downloaded before unboxing the machine.
  2. Next, plug in the Nespresso to an outlet and turn it on.
  3. Press the ‘cup’ button once to tell the machine to wake up.
  4. Now, let’s jump back into the app. In the top right corner, click the “My Machine” button.

  5. From the My Machine page, now click “Pair Vertuo Next” at the bottom of the page.

  6. Wait for the machine to pair

  7. You may need to approve the pairing on your mobile device. This is what popped up on my android phone. Press “Pair and Connect” before it times out.

  8. Once the Bluetooth is connected, you’ll then want to connect to WiFi as well.

  9. Find your WiFi network and enter the credentials just like you would for any other device.

  10. Success!! Press continue to complete the setup process.

  11. Now on the “My Machines” page there should be an entry for your now connected Nespresso machine

All done! Now after all that hard work you deserve a coffee!!

Making Coffee

First, fill the water tank with clean water. Place the coffee capsule into the top of the machine, then lock it. The size of the drink varies depending on what capsule is placed into the Nespresso, so make sure the container you wish to drink from is the correct size. This is to prevent the drink from overflowing—and nobody wants that!

You can adjust the height of the cup holding area by sliding it upward. This can avoid coffee splashing onto your countertop from the Nespresso pouring from a higher height.

Press the coffee button to start brewing your coffee of choice. If you want to cut the brewing short, that can be done easily by pressing the coffee button again. If you want just a little more coffee, you can press the coffee button after it’s done brewing, then press it again when you’ve got just the right amount brewed.

If you’re stuck at any point, Nespresso has a detailed user manual to help with troubleshooting.

Do you need to have the app installed to use the Nespresso? For initial setup, it is necessary to have the Nespresso app on a smartphone or tablet—it can be used offline later for capsules already used before. This connectivity is needed in order for the machine to be up-to-date and work well with new capsule flavor types. It works via Bluetooth and WiFi.

Troubleshooting: Why can’t I pair my Nespresso machine with the phone app.

When I first tried to setup our Nespresso machine, i got pretty much every error under the sun.. so here’s a few troubleshooting tips i picked up along the way

  1. Now close enough. I was trying to hold my phone while pairing. No bueno! You need to put your phone literally on top of the machine like the image on the app shows.
  2. Machine has turned off. Yep, after about 2 minutes the little white light on the Nespresso machine switches off indication the machine is back in standby mode. Make sure that the machine is on and you have a solid white light before trying to connect to it
  3. Phone was asking for permission. Yeah, that notification on screenshot 7.. well, i missed that and it was;t until i checked my notifications to see that my phone wanted me to approve the connections. In that time the Nespresso machine has turned off and i was back to square one!!

How can I connect to my Nespresso?

Once the Nespresso app is installed on your device, follow the most up-to-date instructions on the app screen. It will guide you along each step of the connectivity process.
