    Hi All

    I am in the initial stages of planning a project based on the ESP32, as part of the requirement, I would need to communicate with a mobile phone (android/iPhone) via bluetooth/BLE.
    I was unable to find any reference to this.

    Can someone please point me to a sample code/project.

    Thanks

    As far as I know the internal BT is still under development. You can use an external adapter.

    Thanks for the reply, but that defeats the purpose of using such a beautiful chip.
    I think this should be high priority as it is one of the most important features of the ESP32, especially when we are using B4X tools ( the ESP-32 does complete the loop nicely) . I am surprised no one asked for it yet

    Writing a wrapper to libraries is simple if you know C or C++.

    Honestly I never tried to write a wrapper or use B4R... I didn't even install B4R yet. I am still in the process of doing my initial homework to decide if I should use the Arduino tools or B4R.
    With Regards to "C", I have done that for many years, so I don't think I will have any issues with "C".
    Perhaps the combination would be the best.

    Support for ESP32 Bluetooth is still planned. I'm not sure when will it be ready.

    Hi Erel,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Can you give me a rough time frame please?
    This will make a huge difference for our plans, as it does make the integration with our app so much simpler and more predictable.

    To implement a third party adapter only requires serial port code. Nothing special beyond that.

    Sorry I didn't get what you mean by that

    Your code uses it like a usb serial connection.

    I myself was wondering if he ever sleeps - he's like a maintenance free machine - never stops !!

    How is it even possible for one guy to do all of this?
    At a certain point I had my doubts to the point that I thought "Erel" is being used for the team behind the B4X suite :)

    Amazing!!!!
