Video: Chrome to Phone for Android 2.2 (Froyo)

Advertisement

One of the promises of Froyo was that you could install a little browser extension that would magically beam website URLs directly to your phone without you having to email them to yourself. This is a super useful feature and can save a lot of time if you’re running out the door and want to continue reading a webpage on your phone. In this video, we give a demo on how it works. To get it up and running, you’ll need to install the APK app file on your Android, and you’ll also need to grab the Chrome or Firefox extension. Then, you enter your Google account into the app to register your device, and bam, it works!
