Latest Beta Version of Chrome Desktop Lets Users Send Phone Numbers Right Over to Their Phones

The most recent release of the desktop Chrome browser, version 78, comes with a neat feature, which allows users to quickly send numbers to their phones…

Google just made it possible to send links between a desktop computer and a phone. Now, the tech giant is testing a similar function. With Chrome beta version 78, users can click on a hyperlinked phone number on desktop and send it directly to a phone.

Chrome Beta Desktop Version 78 Lets Users Send Phone Numbers Directly to Their Phones

The new Chrome desktop phone number sharing option is super easy to use. Just right-click on a linked phone number and select from a drop down list.

It’s already live by default. But, anyone who doesn’t see it immediately can go copy and paste: chrome://flags/#click-to-call-context-menu-selected-text into the Chrome address bar. Then, turn on “Enable click to call feature on desktop when a phone number is selected.”

The team over at Android Police have tested the option, which works with Android 9 and 10. However, it’s unknown if it works with previous versions of the mobile OS.
