Android P (9.0) Pairing issue

On Android P (9.0), Google introduces a breaking change, that without location permission, our App won’t be able to get the Wi-Fi SSID name.

If you see the “<unknown ssid>” in the Wi-Fi connection page, like the screenshot below illustrates, you have been hitting this breaking change.

This is fixed in the latest release

Android P
