Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Connecting using Bluetooth, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- Let's talk about connecting to a device…using Bluetooth on your Android phone or tablet.…You're going to use the BluetoothGatt…class libraries.…This API has been available in Android since version 4.3.…It really became functional in 4.4.…And it's really becoming truly useful…starting in 5.0 Lollipop.…Which was recently released.…And one of the good things that Google is doing…is they're getting ready to make sure…that Lollipop runs on practically…every Android device in order to try…to reduce the fragmentation.…So we're gonna focus on things we know that work,…and work well in Lollipop.…
With the understanding that by the time…you get this course, your device will probably…already have a Lollipop build you can use.…Everything we're doing here should work…on your device in Android 4.4.…What I've seen in practice…is sometimes you have to go to your settings,…and turn Bluetooth on and off sometimes…to make Bluetooth keep working.…This doesn't seem to be the case in Lollipop.…So, hopefully you've got your Lollipop very soon.…
