Tips: Froyo can send links from desktop to Android browser

Google’s Cloud to Device Messaging for Android 2.2 seemed like a no-brainer when demo’d at Google I/O. A feature that allows you to discover content on the web and then send it to your phone; how did anyone not think to add that into a previous update?

Whatever the reason, it’s good to know that users can now send web links from their desktop to their mobile device with relative ease. The Chrome to Phone Extension is now available to Google Chrome users, and a Firefox FoxtoPhone extension provides identical functionality. All it takes is a download on your desktop (Chrome or Firefox), downloading and installing the Chrome to Phone apk, and then you’re on your way. We’ve got you covered if you need instructions on how to install an APK.

Thanks go to AndroidCentral.com for spotting this. Anyone who has Froyo can download the required files to begin sending links from the big screen to the little one.
