Microsoft developers are constantly working on improving the OS, and this news just proves it.
Wearable devices such as FitBit connect to our Phones via bluetooth. Due to lack of a functionality known as GATT, devices couldn’t display notifications. Thanks to Microsoft devs, we may now soon have GATT Server API in forthcoming insider build.
GATT, according to Bluetooth.com is :
The Generic Attributes (GATT) define a hierarchical data structure that is exposed to connected Bluetooth LE devices.
A question regarding the GATT support was asked at Windows UserVoice Developers forum, which was answered recently in late Sept by Clint Rutkas.
The Bluetooth team is hard at work adding GATT Server APIs to Windows and we expect GATT Server should be in the Windows Insider Preview builds and SDK later this year. When APIs get added in to the OS and SDK, any developer can start updating their app. Once the next release of Windows is available, any app that want to use these new features will be able submit an update to the Store.
So we can now expect the GATT support to arrive soon, but its not completely know when. Insiders will be geting it in a future Windows 10 build, along with GATT server API in SDK for developers. GATT support is expected to arrive with Windows 10 RS2 build for general public.
