What are the advantages of the FriendChip Beacon Scanner?

The FriendChip App shows metadata of nearby beacons live and does not cache them. So you always see actual information.

The Physical Web proxy service implemented in Chrome or the Android Nearby function might cache metadata for a certain amount of time before displaying a result. For example, in the Chrome or Android Nearby implementation, the proxy service caches metadata for at least 5 minutes in order to provide a fast response. It does not obey "no-cache" HTTP headers. Because of this it might be, that you see outdated information.
