"Hey Google, Tell me something good!" offers up positive news. Kudos on this launch to my teammate, this is something I'd love to see more of in tech.

The Chrome team aims to ship Web Bluetooth for Windows 10 in Chrome 70 (Stable in September 2018).

You can try it today by running Chrome Canary (https://chrome.com/canary) without any experimental flag and let us know if you stumble upon any bugs. Huge thanks to Jan Wilken Doerrie for building this: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+log/master/?author=jdoerrie@chromium.org

Hiring to my team! Build playful experiences into the Google Assistant. Gamedev backgrounds particularly valued. "Hey Google, Call Santa", "Play Lucky Trivia" &c.

After 8 years on Chrome I've switched to a new team. I'm proud of dramatically changing what the web can do: Bluetooth, USB, First person games, WebGL, gamepads, Chrome Apps, ChromeOS!!! Cheers to the web, and to trying something new too.

Experimental Chrome Canary & PuckJS / Thingy52 on Windows 10:

1. Windows > Settings > Bluetooth > Pair a device.
2. Chrome Canary > chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features > Enable
3. chrome://bluetooth-internals/#devices
4. Inspect device, check to see if services are discovered - confirm Chrome can access devices.
5. Use respective web apps:

https://developer.nordicsemi.com/thingy/52/

Some other devices may work. Many other devices do not work. They fail at various stages for root causes we haven't researched yet.

This isn't shipping yet, (it is still behind a flag), but it's exciting that we've got this working.
