Wifi Direct in Android runtime

Hello,

 

Now that BBOS10.2 supports WiFi direct, are there plans to support Wifi direct in the Android runtime? What is the timeline for this?

Hi shea08,

I'll relay the message, but Wifi Direct is currently not on the roadmap for the Android runtime.

Re: Wifi Direct in Android runtime

Thanks for the update. I supposed it is more likely that Wifi direct gets added to the runtime, than Fuji porting the app to BB10. 

 

If they were to do a non-native port (like skype) would they have access to Wifi direct?

shea08,

Wifi Direct is not available in the Android Runtime for BlackBerry 10 currently and is not on the roadmap (https://developer.blackberry.com/android/tools/roadmap/), so they would not have access to it.
