Google Chrome innovates with tabs accessible across devices

Google Chrome Beta users can now share their open tabs from their desktop with their smartphone or tablet and vice versa simply by being logged in. Genius!

Making mobile computing more effective

Google announced today the newest Google Chrome Beta features it the ability for tabs open on one device to be available on all of your other devices (smartphones, tablets) by simply clicking “other devices” on the “New Tab” page, all you have to do is sign in to Chrome

Nicolas Zea and Patrick Dubroy, Software Engineers and Tab Teleportation Technicians at Google said, “Imagine you’ve looked up directions to a cool new restaurant on your home computer. Later, when you’re leaving work, you realize you can’t quite remember how to get there. If only you could quickly pull up the same directions on your office computer with one click!”

The team adds that with a single click, “you can find and open the tab with your directions and be on your way. The tab’s back and forward navigation history is also included, so you can pick up browsing right where you left off. If you use Chrome for Android Beta, the tab will also be available on your phone, right there in your pocket when you hit the road.”

The company says they’ll be rolling out the “other devices” menu to Beta channel users over the coming week, but Chrome Beta users can access it now by simply signing in.

Today’s multi-tasker

It is common for people today to have multiple tabs open as a means of multi-tasking, but this takes multi-tasking to a new level by keeping the experience consistent between devices.

If you’re researching on your phone while on the go, but don’t want the hassle of manually typing in URLs to your desktop, you can now simply log in to Chrome on both and have full access, including back/forward navigation history. Genius!
