Windows 10 users will soon be able to effortlessly connect Bluetooth devices with their PCs courtesy of a new feature that Microsoft has started testing for its operating system. The feature allows users to start pairing and connecting supported devices with a single click. This will thus streamline pairing and connecting to certain Bluetooth devices when they’re in range of the Windows 10-powered PC.
While these select devices are ready to pair and are detected by Windows 10 to be in range, it will show a notification to the user that will let them effortlessly begin the pairing process. A single click will be all that’s needed, this means that users will no longer be required to open settings and then locate the section to add a new Bluetooth device.
The first device available on the market that supports this new experience is Microsoft’s own Surface Precision Mouse but the company isn’t planning on keeping this functionality limited to its own hardware. It’s working with other partners like Logitech to bring support for effortless Bluetooth pairing to other devices as well.
Microsoft has started testing this feature in the latest Windows 10 build 17093 that was released earlier this week to members of the Insider Program. The feature will be rolled out to the public with the next major Windows 10 update that’s expected to be released in March or April.
