BLE Hardware with Windows 10 Peripheral driver support RRS feed

  • Question

  • I’m currently working on a project where I want Windows 10 to work as a Bluetooth GAP Peripheral acting as a GATT Server. Since these features are available in the latests Windows 10 Insider Previews (see: I was wondering why the latest Bluetooth drivers of my Surface Book i7 do not support the Bluetooth Peripheral mode.

    So here comes my question: Does anybody know a Bluetooth adapter which properly supports the Bluetooth Peripheral mode within the latest Windows 10 Insider Preview builds?

  • This is a hardware capability that needs to be supported at the controller level. We have provided an API (BluetoothAdapter.IsPeripheralRoleSupported) to enable developers to discover which devices support the feature at runtime. We have confirmation that Windows Phone’s based on 8992 and later support this feature as well as Windows IoT on RPi3.
