Interesting idea, but almost useless at this time because of the availability of the Google prompt when logging into Gmail. I already was using the Google prompt on my phone, which works without Bluetooth. Bluetooth is so unreliable I would hate to use it for 2FA. In fact, today I tried the new setup on my Android phone. It wouldn't work when I tried to login to Gmail at work. I reverted to using the authenticator app. No matter what I do I can't pair with the Bluetooth on my work computer--it never shows up as an available device on my phone. I have had similar problems with other Bluetooth devices.
