How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

GATT Server API

Provide a GATT Server funtionality over BLE connection (just like Android >= 4.3) so that devices that work as GATT client can be used with WindowsPhone. For now WindowsPhone 8.1 only provides GATT client.

    Kiran works on the team.

    We published this video for //Build2016 this year – https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2016/P460

    In it, Kiran talk about how we plan to make unpaired BLE interaction available later this year. GATT Server APIs will be available to developers in that update so please stay tuned! I’ll reply back on this thread when it’s ready but suffice to say we’re hard at working making this happen. Thanks again for your support!

        any updates on when we might see this? is it planned to be part of the anniversary update later this summer? i've gone back and forth between fitbits and bands for years, because i love the fitbit app but really want notifications. however, i am honestly beginning to think that i just need to change phone platforms.

        Please develope GATT asap - this is standard and should be really implemented. I need it for my fitbit blaze clock.

        Are there any other possibilities to advertise Services for other Bluetooth Low Energy devices? Or do you have an idea how to run a GATT Server on a Windows 10 device using .Net?

        Why is this so hard to implement? With such delayed development of functionality that is being given by Android and iOS for such a long time, I have to say, this is really sad for MS. I am personally (again) thinking to switch back to an Android device after coming from an iPhone 6 and now owning an almost stupid "brick" Lumia 950 XL. It is a midrange phone and not the flagship I expected. Poor functionality. MS mobile is really losing base and many customers.

        The Gear S2 is a device by Samsung. They need to provide app support as GATT Server is just one part of the puzzle when communicating to devices. It's not an instant solution.

        Quick question...as a consumer I'm looking at purchasing a Lumia 950. Will this update allow something like my Gear S2 to pair/work with my Lumia 950? Sorry for the "non-dev" question, but saw this referenced in one of the WPCentral forums. If this is the case, will be all over the 950.

        Thank you!

        Were talking to a brick Wall, never any reply, posts on win beta are 6 months old and never any reply from Microsoft. Seems like a Apple approach, only use our products.

        Dear Microsoft,

        Any new upon this? I would really like to see this supported.
