Besides TCP/IP, EDGELIB also supports the Bluetooth network protocol. Bluetooth works similar to TCP/IP, with only one difference. Bluetooth has the capability to search for devices around approximately 10 meters (32 feet). Bluetooth is excellent for creating multiplayer games. It's possible to let the bluetooth hardware search for devices, without interrupting your application.

An EDGELIB Bluetooth server is a service which can be found with most Bluetooth software. It's even possible to connect to this service with Hyperterminal for debugging purposes. An EDGELIB Bluetooth client searches EDGELIB Bluetooth servers running the same application.

For Windows Mobile EDGELIB currently supports the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.
