Extending Bluetooth support for beacons
My name is Raja from India.
Currently Microsoft doesn't have any specific support for beacons. Beacons are the next generation rulers in the market. As a windows developer, I don't see a good future for windows here,
When ever I contact any manufacturer of beacons, they basically hesitate to support windows, because the limitation in the windows featurest. We don;t have any separate library for beacons. Beacon also considered as normal bluetooth device. Currently I can only read (that too has many limitations) , I can't communicate. This is a big drawback.
We expected this will be solved in windows 10 , but not yet. Till now many clients for my company left out windows and they moved to iOS and Android.
If this is going to continue, then windows will face huge drawback. I have raised many questions related to this in community forum. There was no input from there.
I'm not sure you guys will have a look on this quickly or not. Even if you have a look I'm not sure about your priority.
Windows wings are currently cut down in this area. It's better if we wake up early.
