Windows 10 20H1 shows up on Bluetooth SIG ahead of launch

Microsoft began testing out Windows 10 20H1 in February 2019
when the company offered it to those in the Skip Ahead ring of
Windows Insider program.

For the first time, Microsoft publicly tested Windows 10’s
major update for almost one year and the firm is now finally
planning to roll it out to everyone soon.

As we have
previously reported, Windows 10 20H1 could be released to
the mainstream users in April or May. Microsoft has already
finalized the update and the company is servicing 20H1 with
important security fixes before pushing it out to Release
Preview Ring.

Ahead of public rollout, Windows 10 version 2004 has received
certification for Bluetooth 5.1. While this may mean that
Windows 10 is fully compatible with Bluetooth 5.1, you cannot
get the features of the new Bluetooth technology if you’re
using an old adapter.

Windows 10 20H1 Bluetooth

Bluetooth 5.1 isn’t a huge update with a lot of changes but
there are some nifty improvements. In this new Bluetooth
version, the connection happens faster due to the GATT caching
enhancements and less energy is spent. It also includes general
performance improvements.

Windows 10 will get Bluetooth EATT support

In related news, Microsoft is enabling support for Bluetooth
5.2 features in preview builds of an upcoming Windows 10
update.

Recent code references revealed that Windows 10 will support
Enhanced Attribute Protocol (EATT), which is an improved
version of the Attribute Protocol (ATT), but these changes will
not land with 20H1 update.

According to Bluetooth SIG, EATT aims to provide an improved
user experience
on devices and it will also reduce the end-to-end latency.

What comes after 20H1

After 20H1, Microsoft plans to start working on next feature
update for Windows 10, codenamed 20H2. The next-next update is
due for release in late 2020 and we’ve heard that Microsoft
wants
Windows 10 20H2 to focus mostly on under-the-hood
refinements.

You can expect 20H2 to focus more on polishing the rough areas
of the operating system, rather than on new features.

At the moment, it’s not clear whether or not Bluetooth EATT
improvements will ship with Windows 10’s fall 2020 update.

Windows 10 20H1 comes with several new features including
Cloud Recovery, Windows Search algorithm, new Cortana
experience, and
nifty improvements.
