the type of beacons I’m referring to are a small device that broadcasts a signal to nearby smart phones.

They come in all different sizes and shapes.

Depending on what technology the beacon is using whether it’s a downloadable app or using Google nearby, depends on who sees it.

Currently Google nearby is broadcasting to Android phones with Bluetooth on and Google nearby turned on.

This is what the beacons are using to pick up the signal and broadcast it out to phones using google nearby.

iphone users can see the broadcast with certain apps downloaded.
