Google says the latest release of Chrome for Android supports Eddystone Bluetooth beacons and can surface what's known as "physical web" content to nearby devices. Google's Eddystone beacons can now broadcast web content, such as URLs, to Android devices within range. Google says this means developers will be able to make Android users aware of this content through notifications, which will let people see a list of web sites pertaining to nearby points of interest. For example, the Golden State Warriors basketball team is pushing highlight videos and other content to fans who attend games at Oracle Arena. This new capability is reaching Chrome 49 in the beta channel first. It will eventually be pushed out to all Android devices through the Plat Store.
