Google Launches Chrome To Phone To Send Links, Maps and Phone Numbers to Android Devices

Many a times people tend to find some information that they want to store on their phone for later use. This information usually consists of web pages, address, and phone numbers etcetera. Usually people open the noteandroid-chrome-os application of their phone to save the required information. Now, if you are a Google Chrome user and use an Android based phone then the new Chrome to Phone extension is for you.

This new Chrome extension lets you share an address, a phone number, a web page URL, map or a YouTube video with your Android phone. The official Google Mobile Blog has also given few examples to demonstrate how the application works. Here is one of them :

Suppose you’re reading an interesting article on your favorite news website and need to leave for an urgent appointment. Simply click the extension icon in your browser to send the link to your phone and the device’s browser will automatically open the link, ready for you to view on the go.

However, the sad news is that this application works only on Android 2.2 devices. For people whose phones are already running on Android 2.2 (Froyo), you can download the application from the Android Market. Here is the link to the official blog post from Google.
