I really hope that I'm not asking about a feature that is already in place and I'm just not seeing it lol.

I tried searching the forum though, and didn't see anything about it.

Am I supposed to be able to see a real-time list of Bluetooth devices in the same way that I can see WiFi access points and Cellular towers? If not, can this feature be added?

I'd like to use it as a way to demonstrate/educate others.

Thanks!!

Do you mean when you are in the 'Network List' view?
You can filter Bluetooth devices by using the wrench (top right) and put marks in front of Show bluetooth and Filter Enabled.

Hi larsnl,

Yep, "Network List" view, and yes I have both of those options checked, and right now, all that I can see are two WiFi APs in this building, one next door, and a cell tower.

When I go into my phone's Bluetooth settings, and tap "Pair New Device", I'm able to find my Bluetooth devices, as well as the Bluetooth devices in the other rooms in this building.


Thanks,

--Tony

Seems like part of our deny-features-to-users-who-want-them program! Honestly, it's weird; it's supposed to work the way you want it to.

Want to email or pm us details? Happy to discuss here, too, but don't want to make you publish device/carrier/os details unless you want to

That explains it!!

I appreciate the interest in my problem. I'm going to try uninstalling and reinstalling, and if that doesn't work, I'll take you up on the email/PM offer.

Thanks!

The reinstall did the trick. It's working now!

Thanks!
