Today, we are releasing the Developer Preview 3 (DP3) of Android Things,
bringing new features and bug fixes to the platform. This preview is part of our
commitment to provide regular updates to developers who are building Internet of
Things (IoT) products with our platform. Android developers can quickly build
smart devices using Android APIs and Google services, while staying secure with
updates directly from Google. The System-on-Module (SoM) architecture supports
prototyping with development boards, and then scaling them to large production
runs while using the same Board Support Package (BSP) from Google.

DP3 now includes support for all Android Bluetooth APIs in android.bluetooth
and android.bluetooth.le,
across all Android Things supported hardware. You can now write code that
interacts with both Bluetooth classic and low energy (LE) devices just like a
regular Android phone. Existing samples such as Bluetooth
LE advertisements and scanning
and Bluetooth LE
GATT
can be used unmodified on Android Things. We have also provided two new
samples, Bluetooth
LE GATT server
and Bluetooth audio
sink
.
