GATT Communication is shipped in Chrome on Android, Mac, and ChromeOS

The Chrome team has announced a subset of the Web Bluetooth API is now enabled in Chrome on Android, Chrome OS, and Mac. The GATT Communication API enables users to select Bluetooth devices and pair them to a web site, e.g. to control a toy or interact with a retail kiosk. This enables greater convenience, and less security risk (via least privilege), than installation of a native application.

Check out the updated Chrome implementation status page to learn more about what is currently shipped and what is coming next.
