# 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:
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.
