“Planetary conjuction” - I love it : )
We don’t think that native support for Eddystone’s based notifications will happen anytime soon for Android.
It’s mostly due to the risk of poor user experience.
Users have to opt-in to your proximity experiences; typically they do it by downloading your app
and enabling bluetooth/location services/notifications (planetary conjuction).
The stronger the value of your app the more users with enabled BLE you will have.
If you want to send notifications to users in range who don’t have your app you have to:
- Try Physical Web links that can be received by mobile Chrome browser
- It is also possible to use Google Play (Services) app to talk to users in the range of beacons,
but your app has to offer strong value and be registered by Google - read more about Nearby API.
