Bluetooth LE GATT Custom profile as Peripheral

    Question

  • Hello,

    I must ask, is it possible in Windows/windows phone 8.1 using Windows.Devices.Bluetooth.GenericAttributeProfiles namespace , to act as a peripheral device? I was unable to find an example, advice or any kind of information regarding this question.

  • Windows 8.1 only supports being used as a GATT client as per this document: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/bg182882.aspx#four

    The GATT implementation on Windows Phone 8.1 is to my knowledge pretty much identical so it seems save to assume that you won't be able to make the Phone act as a GATT server as well.

    PS: At the link you will have to scroll down to get to the section on BTLE support, there is no page anchor for that :(
