    I'm using sockets in my application.
    And I just noticed that background sockets don't work any more on Windows 10 (desktop devices).

    Does anybody else experience same issue?

    I tested on mobile phones and emulators and It works as expected but on desktop I receive some gibberish data.

    Found the solution
    instead of using
    await socket.ConnectAsync(new Windows.Networking.HostName(uri.Host), uri.Port.ToString(), SocketProtectionLevel.Tls12);
    use
    await socket.ConnectAsync(new Windows.Networking.HostName(uri.Host), uri.Port.ToString(), SocketProtectionLevel.PlainSocket);
    await streamSocket.UpgradeToSslAsync(Windows.Networking.Sockets.SocketProtectionLevel.Tls12, hostName);
    Chintan Gohel and daimv like this.
