The Web Bluetooth API lets websites discover and communicate with devices over the Bluetooth 4 wireless standard using the Generic Attribute Profile (GATT). It is currently partially implemented in Android M, Chrome OS, Linux, and Mac.

This sample illustrates the use of the Web Bluetooth API to retrieve basic device information from a nearby Bluetooth Low Energy Device. You may want to check out the Device Info (Async Await) sample.
