Windows 10 effortless Bluetooth pairing, soon to come
Microsoft has started testing a quicker and more convenient Bluetooth pairing on your Windows 10 for your devices. With just one click, you’ll be able to pair and connect your Bluetooth devices on your Microsoft computer.
This is expected to be available on their next major update. Windows 10 testers can try the easier Bluetooth pairing in the latest Windows 10 build 17093 released earlier this week. The first device in the market enabled with streamlined pairing is Microsoft’s own Surface Precision Mouse. That means Windows 10 will now produce a notification to quickly connect to the mouse and pair it.
It’s much better than finding the section to add a Bluetooth device in the settings. To some people that are new in using wireless and Bluetooth powered devices, this update is for you. And the good news here, it won’t just be supported by Surface devices. The company is now working with partners, which includes Logitech. This is to ensure that the streamlined Bluetooth pairing will also be available to a number of devices.
IOS and Android also support faster and more convenient pairing for Bluetooth devices.
But Microsoft says “only certain enabled peripherals can trigger this experience” as of now. “We are however looking to standardize this in the long term,” says a member of Microsoft’s Windows Bluetooth core team.
This actually can help a lot of us to be more productive in our day to day tasks. Than to just waste our time in digging and checking for tutorials on how to pair and connect our devices.
The newest Bluetooth support update is set to be released on Microsoft’s next major update this coming March or April.
