Google says Chrome version 49 for Android has graduated from the beta channel and is available as a general release in the Google Play Store. Chrome 49 is notable due to its support for Eddystone Bluetooth beacons, which can surface what's known as "physical web" content to nearby devices. Google's Eddystone beacons broadcast content, such as URLs, to Android devices within range. Chrome can interact with those beacons and the content they offer. Push notifications alert Android users to the content, which may contain information about nearby points of interest. Chrome 49 is free to download from the Play Store.
