# Testing Pinch SDK with a physical or virtual beacon

This page describes testing the Pinch SDK intallation with a beacon.

Any virtual beacon app may be used.

Using an Android device is recommended due to the ability to emulate eddystone packets.

To test push notifications with PinchSDK, set up a beacon with the following configuration:

  • UUID: 55FF336E-DF4B-46C5-A49D-7403A537A109
  • Minor: 2
  • Major: 99
  • Eddystone EID: Enabled (Android)
  • TLM: Enabled (Android)

The beacon must run on a different phone than the app with Pinch SDK. After triggering the beacon you should receive a notification in your app.
