The new Microsoft API WinRT doesn’t allow you to list SSIDs regardless of user permissions.  While it can be done with Win32, it cannot be done with WinRT.  Remember that an App can’t enter the Store unless it is exclusively WinRT.  This means that there isn’t any advanced WiFi analysis Apps in the Windows 8 store.

On Android you can get this:

SSID: XYZ, BSSID: 00:1d:b3:4d:f0:db, capabilities: [WPA-PSK-TKIP+CCMP][WPA2-PSK-TKIP+CCMP-preauth], level: -90, frequency: 2452
