We plan to support WebOTP API on desktop when both Chrome Desktop and Chrome Android are logged into the same Google account.
The WebOTP API gives developers the ability to programmatically read one time code from specially-formatted SMSes addressed to their origin to reduce user friction. Currently it is only available on mobile devices where SMS is supported. Given that the need of one-time-code verification is higher on desktop, this project is to bring the WebOTP API to those platforms.
Status in Chromium
