    No. the Proximity APIs are available for windows phone and store app 8.1. Proximity is enhanced in 8.1. You can see the explanation of MSDN. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/xaml/hh465221.aspx.

    If my reply answers your question, please mark this post as answered.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
