Microsoft is reportedly testing a new Bluetooth feature for Windows 10, which will apparently be available in the company’s next big update. The feature is already available to testers using the Windows 10 build 17093 update that Microsoft released just a week ago. The feature allows seamless connectivity between Windows 10-powered PCs and other devices.
Microsoft's bluetooth connectivity trial brings Microsoft’s PCs up to speed with Apple’s iOS and Android operating system.
The first amongst these devices is the Surface Precision Mouse. Windows 10 PCs will be able to pair easily with devices like these, producing a notification whenever one of them are within range. You can pair the mouse directly through this notification.
For regular Windows users, this will be an important feature. Windows 10’s Bluetooth connectivity options are usually buried inside Settings. So, you have to dig it out whenever you’re pairing a new device. There is a Bluetooth button in the Action Center, though it’s only useful after you’ve paired a device.
This brings Microsoft’s PCs up to speed with Apple’s iOS and Android operating system. You can basically consider the new streamlined Bluetooth support to allow devices of the same nature as Apple’s AirPods and Google’s Pixel Buds. Both those devices pair automatically to iPhones and Pixel smartphones, without requiring additional setup.
