Additionally, the consultation mode allows users to check the value of their cryptocurrency assets anywhere they go.

The company wrote about the different possibilities available with this application:

“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 same features for the Ledger Live mobile app as the desktop version.”

Ledger Nano X users will be able to connect to Android and iOS smartphones using their Bluetooth functionality. Individuals will have the possibility to connect the wallet to the smartphone without any cable. Using pairing, Ledger informs that they will enable a secure connection.
