1. An electronic device comprising:first communication circuitry configured to communicate with an external device through a first communication scheme;
second communication circuitry configured to communicate with the external device through a second communication scheme; and
a processor configured to:
identify whether the second communication circuitry is available to perform a same function with the first communication circuitry, and
based on identifying the second communication circuitry being available to perform the same function with the first communication circuitry, control the first communication circuitry or the second communication circuitry to transmit the identified availability information of the second communication circuitry to the external device,
wherein the identified availability information includes a priority of at least one function supported in the second communication circuitry.
