#Google‘s latest experiment brings new superpowers to #Chrome browsers with powerful chrome extensions called #Google Tone
Google Tone is a #Chrome extension for sharing URLs with nearby computers using sound
Google has launched a new experimental Chrome extension that lets you transmit the URL of a website to other nearby computers using nothing but sound.
To try the feature, all computers must first have the Google Tone Chrome extension installed and be within reasonable earshot of each other. Then, when you’re on a webpage you’d like to share, hit the little Google Tone tab in your browser and you’ll hear a little succession of beeps — not too dissimilar to an old ZX Spectrum computer loading a game. Nearby machines receive a notification with the sender’s Google profile and picture embedded within the message, and the user can choose to open the URL on their own PC.
