Chrome to Phone Extension for Froyo

It’s painful to talk about Froyo right now, but I’m sort of hoping that the more we  talk about how awesome it is, the sooner we’ll see it on the Droid.  And that might be the most idiotic statement I’ve ever typed.  Moving on…

When the time actually comes that we receive Android 2.2, the “Chrome to Phone” feature might be one of the most anticipated.  And in case you missed the keynote and didn’t see this 2.2 addition in action, the above screenie sort of shows how it works.

Basically, you go to a page on your browser, hit the little mobile phone button, it links with an app on your Droid, and BAM!  Webpages, directions, photos, files, etc. shared right to you device wirelessly.

Download the app here.

Download the Chrome extension here.

Download the Firefox extension here.

Or maybe one of you developers out there could just port this app to 2.1?

Cheers Briderx!

    As I said above I also thought that this was one of the best uses of the feature. I’m using an Incredible so I can’t yet try it out, but that would really suck if it wasn’t working.

    I don’t have a N1 so I haven’t experienced this but it sounds cool. I agree with what joey said about phone to chrome.A little off subject, where’s Google Chrome browser for android?

    When will one of these updates include contact list searching using the keypad kind of like in LG phones.

    Simply head to http://code.google.com/p/chrometophone/downloads/list for the downloads. Words of advise, point to the download page instead of the file just in case names change.

    • isey78

  • droidroks

    This is one of the sickest feature on froyo. I almost wish I had not seen the keynote and now I see a review of the app here. I want to delete everything froyo so I can go on with my daily life without checking every hour or so to see if a rom has been made with some of the froyo stuff or the actual 2.2 ota for our Droids

  • Vince

    Some one pleaaasssee find a way to port it!!!!! i cant stop searching!

  • cizzlen

    Ot and late but when will one of these updates include contact list searching using the keypad kind of like in LG phones. This Scrolling shyte is ridiculous…

    • kellex

      HTC Sense does. Not sure why stock Android doesnt. Maybe we'll see it in Froyo?

      • Stephen

        Well, you can hit the search button when in contacts menu and begin typing, and it comes up with people…I don't know if thats what you meant by using your keypad though.

    • Doolidg

      Well you cant use the keypad but you can open your contacts list then hit menu and search your contacts that way

    • MrSchmitz

      Just use Google Gesture Search! I NEVER scroll anymore…

  • THEGOD

    EXCELLENT FOR DIRECTIONS, NOT SO EXCELLENT IF THE CIA OR FEDS IS LOOKING FOR YOU

    • kellex

      OK, you've got to ease off on the capital letters. :P

    • briderx

      I wouldn't mind the Feds sending me some google maps results… :)

  • sorlag

    is this AWESOME or what ?

  • OldNuc

    Porting to Moto Droid is waiting on the release of the source code. That is also the holdup with getting Flash 10.1 to run on 2.1 and 2.0.1

    • Mrpicolas

      Source has been released ie the nexus one update now the trick is to get ththe code and drivers for the moto ironed out for the port

      • kellex

        Source released? Or just update?

        • Mrpicolas

          From what I've found both ota update and update zip have both been released so that should contain source if I'm not mistaken

          • OldNuc

            If its the entire source, or even the patch to 2.1 then the wheels will grind late tonight.

  • http://twitter.com/TysonJohn Tyson

    Is this the same as Moto Phone Tools?

  • briderx

    Was this posted based off my email last week??

    • Octotron

      My guess it was based off the Keynote at I/O. Unless you were the one who gave the Keynote, in that case, yes, it was based off of you :)

      • briderx

        No- That's not what I meant silly billy. I emailed last week with the link to the actual download – Was hoping the random emails were making a difference!

        I did not give the keynote.. But, at 3 minutes and 12 seconds on day 2, that was my cough. – Not really.

        • kellex

          Got a few emails on this…but looking back, you were the first!. Let me update and give you some lovin'!

          • briderx

            YES! My day is complete!

            - Stupid dude at my work quit. I just got laid double the amount of work than normal.. This just made it all worth while ;)

  • Rejuvination

    So right now it only works on 2.2? so… for the Nexus… Blegjaejghaleh

  • kulz

    love this feature!
