The Fuchsia Bluetooth system aims to provide a dual mode implementation of the Bluetooth Host Subsystem (5.0+) supporting a framework for developing Low Energy and Traditional profiles.

Examples using Fuchsia's Bluetooth Low Energy APIs can be found here.
Dual-mode (LE + Classic) GAP operations that are typically exposed to privileged clients are performed using the fuchsia.bluetooth.sys library. This API is intended for managing local adapters, device discovery & discoverability, pairing/bonding, and other settings.
bt-cli is a command-line front-end for privileged access operations:
$ bt-cli bt> list-adapters Adapter: Identifier: e5878e9f642d8908 Address: 34:13:E8:86:8C:19 Technology: DualMode Local Name: siren-relic-wad-pout Discoverable: false Discovering: false Local UUIDs: None
See the bluetooth/tools package for more information on available command line tools for testing/debugging.
Your build configuration may or may not include Bluetooth tests. Ensure Bluetooth tests are built and installed when paving or OTA'ing with
$ fx set workstation_eng.x64 --with //src/connectivity/bluetooth,//bundles/tools
The Bluetooth codebase follows the Fuchsia testing best practices. In general, the Bluetooth codebase defines an associated unit test binary for each production binary and library, as well as a number of integration test binaries. Without good reason, no code should be added without an appropriate (unit, integration, etc) corresponding test. Look in the
GN file of a production binary or library to find its associated unit tests.
For more information, see the Fuchsia testing guide.
Run all the bt-host unit tests:
$ fx test //src/connectivity/bluetooth/core/bt-host
Run a specific test within
$ fx test //src/connectivity/bluetooth/core/bt-host -- --gtest_filter='Foo.Bar'
Foo.Bar are the fixture name and the test name, respectively.
To see all options for running these tests, run
fx test --help.
If you don't have physical hardware available, you can run the tests in the Fuchsia emulator (FEMU) using the same commands as above. See FEMU set up instructions.
See the Integration Test README. TODO(fxbug.dev/96421): This link is very outdated, rewrite and update.
The most reliable way to enable higher log verbosity is with kernel command line parameters. These can be configured through the
fx set command:
fx set workstation_eng.x64 --args="dev_bootfs_labels=[\"//src/connectivity/bluetooth:driver-debug-logging\"]"
This will enable debug-level logging for all supported chipsets. Using
fx set writes these values into the image, so they will survive a restart. For more detail on driver logging, see Zircon driver logging
The Bluetooth system service is invoked by sysmgr to resolve service requests. The mapping between environment service names and their handlers is defined in //src/sys/sysmgr/config/services.config.
The Bluetooth system supports inspection through the Inspect API. bt-gap, bt-host, bt-a2dp, and bt-snoop all expose information though Inspect.
ffx inspect show bootstrap/driver_manager --file class/bt-host/000.inspectexposes information about the controller, peers, and services.
ffx inspect show core/bluetooth-core/bt-gapexposes information on host devices managed by bt-gap, pairing capabilities, stored bonds, and actively connected peers.
ffx inspect show core/bt-a2dpexposes information on audio streaming capabilities and active streams
ffx inspect show core/bt-snoopexposes information about which hci devices are being logged and how much data is stored.
ffx inspect show core/bluetooth-core/*
ffx inspect show core/bt-*

Inclusivity is central to Fuchsia's culture, and our values include treating each other with dignity. As such, it’s important that everyone can contribute without facing the harmful effects of bias and discrimination.
Bluetooth Core Specification 5.3 updated certain terms that were identified as inappropriate to more inclusive versions. For example, usages of ‘master’ and ‘slave’ were changed to ‘central’ and ‘peripheral’, respectively. We have transitioned our code's terminology to the more appropriate language. We no longer allow uses of the prior terms. For more information, see the Appropriate Language Mapping Table published by the Bluetooth SIG.
See the Fuchsia project guide on best practices for more information.
