Many times, while working or researching online, using Google chrome on your PC, there might be some webpage which you would like to look up at a later time. Especially when you know there is no power supply at that moment and you can’t trust your laptop’s battery either, you can transfer these information to your smartphone be it android or apple.
Probably, you’ve found a few reviews on a product to help with your survey, a new article on a DIY technique, or some other information; there are tons of reasons you might search for things on your PC, but then want to get them onto your phone for a future use or for storage sake.
The good news is that you do have some options, to make this possible. While there isn’t really a direct, built-in way to do that, there are some extensions that can installed on chrome for you to perform this function for both iPhone and android.
There are two possible ways of sending a webpage from Chrome to your phone:
1. Using an Extension:
To Use an Extension, I would recommend Pushbullet. You would need to install the Chrome Pushbullet extension and Good thing is, it’s available for iOS and Android on the mobile side. I believe everyone can do basic phone application installation and also install an extension on Google Chrome, go ahead and install it on both ends and get signed up for the service.
With the extension installed and the Pushbullet app running on your mobile device, right-click the webpage you want to send your phone, scroll down to the Pushbullet on the context menu, and select your device to send to. It immediately shows up on your phone as a link in the Pushbullet app.
Android users will get a notification while users of iPhone, will have to open the Pushbullet app manually to find your link. Finally, every link you’ve sent shows up in the app.
2. Chrome’s Native Tab syncing:
If You don’t want an extension, Chrome’s native Tab Syncing can be an alternative. It’s a bit more of a hassle this way, but you don’t need much, just the Chrome browser on your computer and phone. On your phone, you can access the open tabs in the Chrome browser on your PC. How? Just open the settings menu, and then tap the Recent Tabs command.
This will open a screen with the newest tabs open on your other devices that you’re logged into. Just pick the one you want opened on your phone.
If You Use an Apple product, a Mac, an iPhone or iPad, you can use AirDrop. Here’s how: With a webpage open in Google Chrome on your Mac PC, click on File > Share> AirDrop.
In the window that pops up, select the device to which you want to send the webpage to and voila! As easy as it can be. Getting a page from your computer to your phone shouldn’t be a hassle at least to streamline work efficiency and work-on-the-go.
Once set up, Pushbullet is one of the fastest and easiest and it supports a lot of other features too, like send SMS, chats, preview notifications on your phone through your PC while working on your computer and others.
I believe this article was useful and you now know how to send a webpage from Chrome to your phone.
