This specification is an addendum to Web Intents, that defines how Web Intents enabled User Agents can discover and communicate with local Web Intents Services.

Work on this document has been discontinued and it should not be referenced or used as a basis for implementation.

The Web Intents Addendum defines how Web Intent may be used to discover services on a local network. Work on this specification has been discontinued since the Web Intent specification has been published as a W3C Working Group Note indicating no further development on the Recommendation track at this time. Implementation support has also been removed from existing systems (e.g. WebKit) precluding interoperability testing. Issues related to Web Intents were outlined in a mail message on the DAP mailing list .

The Charter of the Device APIs Working Group continues to include this work as "in scope", so the working group could decide to resume work if warranted by new information.
