BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) has been available on Android since API level 18. This was 9 years ago and a lot has happened since then. The platform APIs have become more stable, new features are supported, and the OS is providing better support for working with BLE while the app is in the background.

In this talk, we will go through the state of BLE on Android in 2022, and also look at what is coming up soon. This session will be valuable for anyone working on BLE or planning to.
