Microsoft in the Works to Bring Bluetooth “Quick Pair” Feature to Windows 10 With RS4

Looks like the next Windows 10 feature update would bring faster ways for users to connect their Bluetooth-enabled devices. Microsoft appears to be working on improving the Bluetooth device pairing experience with a new feature called “Quick Pair.”


First spotted by Thurrott in Windows 10 Redstone 4 preview builds, Quick Pair would allow users to quickly pair Bluetooth devices to their Windows 10 PC directly without having to search for Bluetooth devices or hold buttons in order to connect them. For this feature to work, the users just need to bring their Bluetooth device closer to their Windows 10 device and it will automatically give a pop-up asking them to connect the device. It’s just that easy!

The feature would work in much the same manner as how Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth LE functionality that Apple AirPods and Google Android Fast Pair-enabled devices use today.


However, since it’s only a part of an Insider Build, there isn’t much to be said about Microsoft’s Quick Pair feature. It remains to be seen whether the company will keep it limited to their Surface and Xbox peripherals or it will be compatible with all kinds of Bluetooth devices or if they will release the feature with the final Redstone 4 Build.
