Eddystones – beacons without apps

November 8th, 2016|

In order to use beacons, you need an app. Well, not always. xamoom now also supports Google's physical web standard and it's Eddystone-beacons. It works like a charme – well, almost.

Implementing the Physical Web

November 8th, 2016|

The Physical Web specifies a concept of how places and objects can broadcast information or add functionality to themselves using so called Eddystones, which broadcast URLs via the Bluetooth Low Energy beacon profile. These URLs can point to information or web apps tied to this object in a browser or to deep link into installed apps on iOS and Android. This allows developers to make phones react to real world context without having a dedicated app installed on the user's phone, like it is the case with iBeacons. (HINT: If you do not want to go too far into detail and just want to know how you can use that right now, scroll down to "The easiest way of implementing this") Perquisites To make this work the user needs to have the latest version of Google Chrome installed, the phone must be capable of the Bluetooth Low Energy beacon profile (iOS 7+, Android 4.3+) and the user must have Bluetooth as well as location services activated. Today it is pretty likely that a lot of users already meet these perquisites since location services are needed by a lot of apps and Activity Trackers or Smartwatches also requiere the Bluetooth Low Energy beacon profile. To make your web app work with the physical web standards it needs to be HTTPS and your URLs must be at most 17 bytes long. This 17 byte limit has some exceptions. "https://" as well as for example ".com" counts only as one byte, meaning "https://m.xamoom.com/abc123" is exactly 17 bytes long. https:// => 1 m.xamoom => 8 .com => 1 /abc123 => 7 Of course there is one last thing that you need: the web app itself. You'll need to have a web app incl. a CMS which can deliver location based content or functions, based on location idenfiers. (Hint: That's was xamoom does for you!) Indexing and other challenges If your web app meets these perquisites, there is still a not too small challenge for your web app to overcome: Google needs to index that. To be more precise, a bot called "Google-PhysicalWeb" will do the job. This thing is looking for the following meta information in your web app. <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <meta name="description" content="YOUR CONTENT DESCRIPTION"> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="YOUR FAV ICON"> <title>YOUR CONTENT TITLE</title> </head> If you have very static content in your web app this seems to be a very easy thing to do, but as soon as your web app loads information dynamically it gets tricky, because this information must be there in the [...]
