    Bluetooth is for short range. You can't connect to any person of world. While in WiFi it is possible.

    Bluetooth allows for short-range data transfer between devices. As an example, it is commonly employed in headsets for mobile phones, enabling hands-free phone use. Wi-Fi, on the other hand, allows devices to connect to the Internet.

    Bluetooth is a short range wireless technology that is intended to replace the wires that are used between things like an MP3 player/smart phone and speaker or computer mouse and computer.  Bluetooth is a standard - https://www.bluetooth.com./  Bluetooth is known as a "personal area network".  Consider Bluetooth to be something that reliably connects two devices in a room with little to no obstacles.

    Wi-Fi is intended as an alternative "wired Ethernet".  Wi-Fi is standardized by the IEEE, the same governing body that standardized Ethernet.  Wi-Fi is considered a "Local Area Network" technology, where the signal between Wi-Fi access point and device can be upwards of 250 feet (75m) in ideal conditions. Wi-Fi networks can be expanded to cover much larger areas by use of coordinated access points.

    Bluetooth is a "Personal area network" system, for interconnecting directly between phones and gadgets etc., rather than using audio cables and such.

    The normal range is around ten metres and the maximum speed typically three million bits per second.

    It is a "frequency agile" system that continuously switches at random through 79 different frequencies, to minimise the possibility of any two devices interfering with each other. 

    The idea is that any number of people can use their own bluetooth stuff within close range of each other, without interference or problems.

    WiFi is a "Local area network", for things to connect to a WiFi access point [either stand-alone or part of a home router] and with a range of 100 - 500 metres.

    That is to provide a network connection to other computers and devices, and usually the internet.

    Maximum speeds typically 300 - 1200 million bits per second, depending on the exact equipment in use.

    There are a limited number of WiFi frequencies and there is often a lot of congestion and slowdown in towns and cities, as too many systems overlap and interfere with each other.

    WiFi is a generic wireless communication system.

    Bluetooth is a propitiatory wireless system.
