Found another neat feature today - Chrome to Mobile
« on: July 26, 2012, 12:02:03 PM »
I use Chrome most of the time on my desktop, and given I drink the Google koolaid I keep them all signed into Google services so I can share bookmarks and other content between each instance.  Well I just found a bridge that was introduced in ICS that's pretty neat - Chrome to Mobile.

Basically you add the Chrome to Mobile extension to Chrome on your Desktop, and then verify Chrome to Mobile is enabled on your Nexus 7 (Chrome > Settings > tap Email Address > Chrome to Mobile checked).  And when this is all done when viewing a website on the desktop you can click the phone icon in the Address Bar and the current website will load on your Nexus 7.

I don't always have both devices sitting next to me, but there are times when I could see this being beneficial if I'm say pulling up a recipe or some other instructions for whatever and want to forward it to my Nexus 7 to carry across the house. 

Also I tried to get screenshots of this, but whenever I brought-up the Chrome to Mobile bubble from Chrome it disappeared as soon as I pressed Printscreen... so here's the screenshot from Google:



Also I've tested it and it works rather well, though I think the plugin may still be considered Beta so your mileage may vary.

You might like to check out the Phone 2 Google Chrome app for sharing links the other way. Should work with any browser from the Share menu item.

If you run ICE CREAM SANDWICH on your Android device, then you need the new beta version of CHROME TO MOBILE.

Can be found here:
