This is super handy.

The latest version of Google Chrome, 77, is rolling out to all your devices this week (well, unless you run Linux). There are a few visual tweaks, along with one super handy feature – the ability to send links to the page you’re on to your other devices.

No more having to search through your history to find things, no more folders of bookmarks that you never look at, just a simple link that should speed up the process quite a bit.

Google Chrome 77 brings one super useful feature – the ability to send links to your other devices via notifications. That’s a boon for anyone who regularly switches between desktops, laptops, and mobile devices (and face it, who doesn’t nowadays?).

It’s super easy to use, here’s how:

  • Just right-click on the webpage, and select the device you want to send it to (mine says Pixel 3 XL)
  • That’ll give you a notification on your other device, and clicking/tapping on that will load the webpage in your default browser

  • At least, that’s how it works from Chrome on the Windows desktop version. On iOS, you need to have Chrome open to accept the sent link.
  • The macOS version doesn’t appear to have the Send to device feature as of yet

That should make syncing your life between desktop and mobile devices even easier now.

Also new in Chrome 77 – a new site loading indicator in tabs. When you open a link in a new tab, the favicon in the tab has a rolling circle around it as the favicon grows in size. Once it’s loaded, the circle goes away and the favicon is full size. Nifty.

What do you think? Plan on using this new feature in Google Chrome? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
