Our GATT API is different from current W3C spec [1] due to historic reasons.
This meta bug is for all bugs needed in order to align with W3C spec including the security review.

Is this fxos only? Is work being continued on this? If so why?

We need a Gecko-wide Bluetooth solution so we can:

A. Remain competitive
B. Provide a platform for future connected devices projects

Wilson,

FYI. We bluetooth team, as part of Taipei office, is no longer dedicated to CD anymore. We have no reserved resource for WebBluetooth API in Gecko unless there's formal request to Taipei from other team (e.g., CD).

1) Yes, fxos only, wrapped with build flag.
2) No, it's suspended for being considered low priority.

I understand but we are not the decision maker:(

There are many people in Mozilla showing their security concern to W3C WebBluetooth API exposed to the web. And we're struggling to suspend WebBluetooth work.
> B. Provide a platform for future connected devices projects
It's clear that it's not platform team's focus this year. We've discussed with platform team about exposing WebBluetooth API, and this work has been considered low priority. AFAIK, servo team is also working on W3C WebBluetooth.
