Long-term plan for app hashes #4
Looking through the howto and the associated link for obtaining hashes on Android, is there a way to acquire the hash within the page? Currently it seems as if the developer would need to check the browser user agent to obtain a version number and map that to a specific channel which will also update on a regular basis.
Would there be any risk / issue to exposing something like
Or given "Long term, we expect the formatting to be browser agnostic…" is the purely something that is an expected implementation detail for early adopters / experimenters?
Our current operating conjecture is that the long term solution to this problem isn't to expose the concept of the app hash on the web platform, but work with the android team to come up with different routing mechanisms for the SMS Retriever API.
One of the early ideas that we are discussing is making android aware of the server side formatting convention and routing HTTPS-addressed SMS to the default browser the user has chosen in their settings.
