I have tested the Eddystone URL protocol with the default URL (https://twitter.com/estimote) and I was able to receive a notification on my Android device, but when I changed it to https://goo.gl/VJm5q2 no notification is coming through. This is a simple link to the Google Play store for the Facebook app which was shortened through the goo.gl URL shortener (https://goo.gl/) since you are only able to provide URL addresses that are shorter than 17 bytes.
The URL was tested and successfully verified on: https://beaufortfrancois.github.io/sandbox/physical-web/url-validator/
So I can’t see a reason why this should not work.
Can someone please provide me with a reason as to why this is not working or a possible way to fix this. Any feedback would be appreciated.
