Ricardo Cabello aka Mr.doob has hacked the Daydream VR controller to work with Web Bluetooth and it is pretty pretty cool!

Images, videos and audio files from Android apps are now accessible from the Files app in the latest Dev update of Chrome OS.

Think of it as a semi-flattened view of all media files kept tracked by Android. Note that these files are read-only.

We can now stop receiving GATT Notifications in the latest Chromium build for Mac.

https://github.com/WebBluetoothCG/web-bluetooth/blob/master/implementation-status.md#chrome has been updated as well to reflect this change.

A Web Bluetooth API shim is now available in noble, the most popular Node.js BLE central module. It allows you to webpack/browserify noble without the need for a WebSocket server or other plugins.

Thank you +Luis Montes!
Your work is much appreciated.

I'd like to share with you our goals for the first quarter of 2017.

Keep in mind that these include stretch goals (we anticipate achieving about 70% of these goals).
This is implementation work, not shipping dates (ships as much as 3 months later based on when code lands).

- Resolve previous and discovered bugs and small polish issues
- macOS feature parity: notifications, descriptors read/write.
- Start Windows 10 implementation
- Layout Tests refactored to use dynamic mocks & prepared for upstreaming to Web Platform Tests.
- Onion Soup (https://goo.gl/wDK4wG)

After years of careful refactoring, all of the code for Chrome for iOS is rejoining Chromium and being moved into the open-source repository at https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/master/ios/.

That means developers can now compile the iOS version of Chromium like they can for other versions of Chromium. See instructions at https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/ios_build_instructions.md
