1. A wireless communication method, comprising:
establishing a WIFI channel and a Bluetooth channel between a first communication device and a second communication device;
detecting a communication distance between the first communication device and the second communication device; and
transmitting multimedia data between the first communication device and the second communication device through the WIFI channel and transmitting a control command between the first communication device and the second communication device through the Bluetooth channel, when the communication distance between the first communication device and the second communication device is less than or equal to a distance threshold,
wherein the step of transmitting the multimedia data through the WIFI channel when the communication distance is less than or equal to the distance threshold further comprises:
detecting a strength of a WIFI signal when the communication distance between the first communication device and the second communication device is less than or equal to the distance threshold;
directly using, when it is determined according to the strength of the WIFI signal that the WIFI channel is available, the WIFI channel to transmit the multimedia data; and
switching, when it is determined according to the strength of the WIFI signal that the WIFI channel is unavailable, to the Bluetooth channel and transmitting the multimedia data through the Bluetooth channel,
wherein the step of transmitting the control command through the Bluetooth channel when the communication distance between the first communication device and the second communication device is less than or equal to a distance threshold comprises:
detecting a strength of a Bluetooth signal when the communication distance between the first communication device and the second communication device is less than or equal to the distance threshold;
directly using, when it is determined according to the strength of the Bluetooth signal that the Bluetooth channel is available, the Bluetooth channel to transmit the control command; and
switching, when it is determined according to the strength of the Bluetooth signal that the Bluetooth channel is unavailable, to the WIFI channel and transmitting the control command through the WIFI channel by:
adding additional control command that needs to be transmitted to a head of a WIFI transmission queue, and
transmitting data according to the WIFI transmission queue.
