Using state of the art mesh networking technology, Beam allows for you to stay in-sync, with or without internet. This mesh network allows for communication via Bluetooth, wi-fi, or cell phone data connection.
Due to the use of this technology within the app, Beam asks permission for the use of Bluetooth and WiFi to connect and sync with nearby devices. You will be asked to accept these two permissions after you create your account and enter the ensemble for the first time. Only by accepting these permissions will you be able to fully experience all that Beam has to offer with Live Mode and Global Annotations.
If you accidentally denied the Location Services Permission to allow Bluetooth to function (Android) or WiFi/Bluetooth Local Network function (iOS), follow the steps below to enable these permissions.
