Listing nearby bluetooh devices name

    Question

  • Hi,

    I would like to write a Windows 8.1 App able to retrieve the list of Bluetooth devices names around my device. (The same list accessible through "PC Settings/PC and devices/Bluetooth")

    I have tried using DeviceInformation.FindAllAsync() but I receive lots duplicated names and even devices which is not listed in the Bluetooth names list.

    Is there any other way I could simply have that list of names?

    Thanks for your help,

    Diogo

  • Hi Diogo,

    If you read the documentation, FindAllAsync will list all the device that can be listed. Probably you may use PeerFinder class instead for finding all Bluetooth devices.
