Bluetooth connectivity 24x7?

The mycroft Mark II, will that have bluetoot so I can use it as a bluetooth speaker? and if so, can a computer stay connected to it 24x7 and if mycroft needs to talk it will just mute or turn down (preferably turn down) the bluetooth input?

Hi there @jjohnston7, great question.

Theoretically the Xilinx board on the Mark 2, along with the Bluetooth stack that’s provided with Ubuntu 18.04 - the operating system the Mark 2 is running - can definitely run Bluetooth, however we haven’t had the opportunity to test it out yet.

We’ll definitely post when we get a chance to take Bluetooth for a spin.
