Android Bluetooth Low Energy Subscribing to Notifications from the Gatt Server


Example

You can request to be notified from the Gatt Server when the value of a characteristic has been changed:

gatt.setCharacteristicNotification(characteristic, true);
BluetoothGattDescriptor descriptor = characteristic.getDescriptor(
    UUID.fromString("00002902-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb");
descriptor.setValue(BluetoothGattDescriptor.ENABLE_NOTIFICATION_VALUE);
mBluetoothGatt.writeDescriptor(descriptor);

All notifications from the server will be received in the onCharacteristicChanged method of your BluetoothGattCallback:

    @Override
    public void onCharacteristicChanged(BluetoothGatt gatt, BluetoothGattCharacteristic characteristic) {
        super.onCharacteristicChanged(gatt, characteristic);
        byte[] newValue = characteristic.getValue();
}
