Functional Bluetooth BLE plugin for UWP+ANDROID+IOS

Hello community,

I am currently looking for a plugin that is functional across Xamarin platforms' UWP, Android and IOS.

I've already seen Sabre's incredible work on the Android & IOS (BLE Plugin), kudos on the work that went into this btw, however the framework is unfortunately not functional in UWP.

Question to the experienced Xamarin Forms & BLE comm devs; do you know of a plugin that is functional in "UWP, Android and IOS"?

Thanks for any pointers guys

@GTC-6176 There is no such Bluetooth BLE plugin could be functional across Xamarin platform’s UWP, Android and IOS. In UWP, you need to implement such plugin yourself.

This plugin is all great and working on Android, but on UWP some features still do not work, one that I found is indications are not received on client App on UWP side, which works perfectly fine on the same code on Android. Still, this is closest to working. The work on it however seems stalled.

Hello @YanGu-MSFT. Surprisingly there is such thing (currently). The Xabre xamarin-bluetooth-le Service Release for 2.1.0 does not support UWP, however the pre-release 2.2.0-pre2 does. Quite powerful too, all functionalities of BLE comm are functional across all 3 platforms.
