Move to BLE and GATT based transactions

Hi Gadgets Team

Wanted to check with you if support for BLE GATT profile is in the works as the BR/EDR based SPP profile and the methods of pairing that have been described in the BETA docs are rather a little cumbersome. Also given that BLE ATT methods provides a more efficient way of handling service discovery and packet transactions, I was slightly surprised as to the choice of EDR and and SDP based service discovery mechanism.

Things like reconnection, discovery, security have their enhancements take care in 4.2 GATT.

However I still have faith that the Gadgets team would have chosen this for some reason after a fair amount of thought put into it.

I believe a lot of other developers would have raised this, but just sharing my two cents.

I'm also interested in this, as it seems that apart from audio applications, most Bluetooth SoCs for smart devices use BLE only.

Hi Narioinc and david_,

Thanks for the great feature request. I'd suggest posting this as a feature request in Uservoice for Alexa over here.
