Hey folks – Bluetooth APIs for Mesh are on our radar and will be one of the first new features added to the Device OS beyond stability improvements to the existing Particle Mesh functionality. Learning from the preorder process, it’s too early in the design and execution process for us to commit to a timeline.
Specifically for RedBear, we have committed to the following:
- Sales of RedBear hardware through the end of Q1 2019 (with a last buy on 3/29/19)
- Support of RedBear hardware through the end of Q3 2019
Our intention is to create a transition path for RedBear customers, which relies on the Argon and the Xenon to provide equivalent functionality to the Duo and Nano. Obviously, that is not possible without support for Bluetooth APIs, which hopefully gives you a sense of our intended timeline for shipping these features to the community.
