        Cross platform allowing for rapid development of applications that can communicate with IOT devices

        Jeffrey Yasskin first made a request for Web Bluetooth GATT Client API on Sep 15, 2015. 2.5 years later still not implemented?

        Might have to move to Apple OS. I am still hoping, though, that the MS folks support the pocket lab voyager bluetooth protocol soon!

        Hello, I work for the Bluetooth SIG.

        I'm interested in the potential which a W3C standard Bluetooth LE API for browsers offers, though I not also some of the concerns raised by others. I'd welcome seeing work actively underway between the various parties to see if issues can be satisfactorily addressed. Bluetooth LE APIs are in most other platforms, including the various smartphone platforms. Bluetooth is going to be used increasingly in enterprise computing scenarios and as such, cloud technology with web applications rather than native desktop applications is likely to be the preferred architecture.

        Aside from expressing our support, is there anything more tangible which the Bluetooth SIG might be able to contribute? I'd be happy to discuss by phone or face to face.

        Thanks

        Martin

        We need this functionality support! Please get up to spec with the rest of the operating systems (Mac, Chrome, Linux) in regards to Bluetooth.

        We'd love to see this happen so our customers can connect to our smart insoles (getarion.com) using Edge

        It would be very helpful, even for support w/o the need for any app installation ...

        We need this in enterprise development to talk to Bluetooth devices such as a card reader.

        I am developing several IoT devices that use this. Currently I am having to tell my users to use Chrome.
