According to the announcement, both Ledger Nano S and Ledger Blue users can now view their balances by scanning a LiveQR code available on the desktop version of the Live app. The new mobile version is designed to let users check the value of their crypto holdings on the go.
However, significantly more functionality is set to come to Ledger Live with the launch of the Nano X, Ledger’s new Bluetooth-enabled wallet that’s scheduled to start shipping in March.
“Thanks to the mobile app, you will be able to wirelessly transact everywhere with the Ledger Nano X,” said the Ledger team. “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 Nano X was first teased at CES 2019 and features higher memory than previous Ledger products. According to Ledger, it can store apps for up to 100 crypto assets, a six-fold jump over the Nano S.
