Which Beacons are Compatible with the Physical Web App?

We have been asked a few times, which beacons are compatible with the Physical Web app.

The Physical Web is an open source project, championed by Google, that uses Bluetooth beacons to transmit a URL. The URL can point to anything, but this is typically a web page. In theory, an app is no longer required. However until (or if ever) this is baked into operating systems, you still need an app or a web browser that’s listening for the advertised URL.

There are currently Physical Web clients (apps) for iOS and Android. Chrome (including for iOS) and Opera support the detection of Bluetooth Physical Web URLs.

Eddystone-URL is used for the Physical Web URL. Hence any beacon that supports Eddystone can be seen in the Physical web app.
