I recently updated Chrome from v 55 to 56
Google Chrome 56.0.2924.76 (Offizieller Build) (64-Bit)
Betriebssystem Linux (OpenSuse 42.2)
and now I'm not anymore able to connect to the Puck.js
"SEARCHING .... NO PORTS FOUND"
And I can also niot find how to enable webbluetooth in the chrome://flags section
Can someone confirm this behaviour? Or give instruction how to solve it.
I found a change in the experimental flag also on Windows where it still doesn't work. Maybe you have to enable it again?
This experimental flag is not anymore available.
I switched to Chromium. In Chromium the flag can be activated and the Web-IDE works like it should.
This version is now
Chromium 55.0.2883.75 (Entwickler-Build) (64-Bit)
From 56 it's no longer experimental -it's a default feature.
You're having problems using this on Linux? I've been using Chrome 56 on Linux for a while now without issues - however I'm pretty sure you need the experimental flag still needs enabling on Linux, just not on Mac or Android

It's still there, it just doesn't mention 'Web Bluetooth' any more - it's Experimental Web Platform Features
Experimental Web Platform Features
@Gordon is right.
Web Bluetooth is supported by default (no flag) on Mac, Android and Chrome OS.
On Linux, you need chrome://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features experimental flag for now.
Urgh. That's annoying. I did an update on Ubuntu and Web Bluetooth was no longer enabled.
Yes I've had that. Experimental Web Platform Features will likely fix it though - unless it's overwritten Bluez?
@Gordon I only had to re-enable that flag and it started working again.
Great - thanks for letting me know!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
