Postby long585 » Wed Jan 04, 2017 2:06 am

At present this version wifi mode only have WIFI_MODE_STA, WIFI_MODE_AP, WIFI_MODE_APSTA.

WiFi stack doesn't support P2P right now. We don't have this in near-term plan because we haven't got feature requests for this from customers. Long term, yes, it will be supported.

Lack of p2p mode implementation is what holding us form considering ESP32 modules as a replacement of our current Broadcomm solution. Plaese, make wifi-p2p mode ASAP.

The P2P mode is absolutely essential for our customer so please do consider this a mandatory and urgent feature request with follow-up order potential of >10M units.

Sorry, currently, P2P is not in our schedule in IDF. The priority of P2P is low now.

To expand on what Jack is saying: the development of esp-idf is partially driven by foresight on the part of Espressif (aka what we think would be nice to have and useful in a chip like the ESP32), partially by sales (customers needing a certain feature in order to finish their gadget). The forum is a very good place for the first type of item: if you're missing a certain kind of feature and can make a case for us pouring development time into it because it would make a lot of the community happy, we'll gladly consider it. (And have done so in the past, by the way.) If you're a business and need a certain not-too-common feature like P2P, the forum is not the right place: the people from Espressif that lurk here are mostly engineers. You're better off contacting us directly through our sales/pre-sales channels in that case.
