Chrome lets you connect a website to your Bluetooth devices. For example, if you have a Bluetooth-enabled heart monitor, you can let a website connect to it. Then, the page can record and show information about the monitor.
Bluetooth is a standard short-range wireless communication between devices. Bluetooth "Classic" is a set of binary protocols that supports speeds up to 24 Mbps. Bluetooth 4.0 introduced a new "Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)" mode that is limited to 1 Mbps but allows devices to leave their transmitters off.
Important: Currently, Chrome only supports connecting to a Bluetooth Low Energy device.
When to give access to your device
Only give device access to a trusted site. If you pair a website with your device, the site gets all the information on the device and can even reprogram it. You can choose your default permission setting on your computer.
