Any Bluetooth Support outside of Proximity API?


  • Does Metro support any APIs for talking directly to Bluetooth devices?  This is not a proximity application - just connect to a Bluetooth device and transfer data, e.g. copy pictures from a phone over BT.

  • Bump. There doesn't appear to be a direct way to ProximityStreamSocket. The ProximityDevice APIs appear insufficient for this task, since you can't specify which service (GUID) you'd like to connect on, and there don't appear to a way to perform a "pair".

  • Bluetooth support is available to Metro style apps through the proximity APIs.  There is no other method to do this from a Metro style app.
