Home Assistant Adds In-box Bluetooth Support

Yesterday’s release of Home Assistant 2022.8 adds built-in Bluetooth support. This allows multiple integrations to share common functionality and (important for non-Linux platforms) share a single Bluetooth adapter.

In the release are five integrations built on top of this support, along with Apple HomeKit support for Bluetooth devices (even if you don’t have an Apple device).

For more information on the integration and details of supported Bluetooth adapters see the integration page.
