BlueZ Works On Android Bluetooth GATT Support
The BlueZ Linux Bluetooth stack now has support on Android for the Bluetooth GATT profile.
The GATT profile is short for the Generic Attribute Profile and yields profile discovery / description services on the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol. Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) / Bluetooth Smart consumes much less power than traditional Bluetooth devices while offering similar range and has been part of the standard since Bluetooth 4.0.
With this Git commit earlier in the day followed by other work, the Bluetooth GATT profile is beginning to be supported by the BlueZ stack for Android. As of recently there's been much work going on for supporting BlueZ on Android.
