Google to Test Ultra-Wideband for Chromebooks

Google has announced its intention to test a new wireless communication protocol. Although just a test at the moment, Google is reportedly prepping ultra-wideband (UWB) tech for Chromebooks.

Chrome Unboxed has found references to the new protocol on Chromium Gerrit, a web-based tool that allows developers to submit and review code changes for the Chromium project (Via Android Authority). As the outlet points out, the possibilities for UWB are endless. For those who are unfamiliar, UWB is a short-range, wireless communication protocol that uses radio waves. However, it differs from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in that it operates at a much higher frequency.
