Is there a way to query/pair Bluetooth LE devices through anything but the built in UI? RRS feed

  • Question

  • For everything I've seen, there doesn't appear to be a way to query/pair surrounding peripheral devices any way but the built in UI. I've tried a few methods including interfacing directly with the Bluetooth LE device but haven't had any luck.

    Has Microsoft actively made the choice to forgo giving developers the ability to have integrated Bluetooth LE experiences with their applications?

  • Hi Brandon,

    You are correct, Windows 8/8.1 does not have an Api to perform this task.  Only the built-in UI can be used to accomplish this.
