about three months ago I wrote about the anuncio the closure of Chrome to Phone, the legendary application to send from Google Chrome on a PC links, addresses and text to your mobile. The reasons given by Google is that the system was both outdated and more or less could do the same in different ways in other applications.
However, as a few commentators highlighted yes there are people next March 31 will miss the old acquaintance Chrome to Phone. Yes, you can send addresses from Google Maps and yes, history is synchronized with Google Chrome, but simply is not the same to use the tiny application Chrome to Phone.
If you were a user of Chrome to Phone you probably you have groped the alternative before doomsday. The best known is undoubtedly Pushbullet, but the modelo payment makes you should checkout to do the same thing you did with Chrome to Phone. There is an alternative that seems to resonate more than others these days, Push2Droid, but I will not talk about it, but one that may surprise you, Telegram
clearly nobody likes install more applications than are strictly necessary. Mobile, however much RAM you have, just turning slow sooner or later, with an internal memory that is never enough. If the March 31 you put in mourning because Chrome to Phone tells you goodbye, may not need to install anything extra, maybe all you need is already there, Telegram.
Okay, this assumption is a bit pretentious as implies that you have already installed and use Telegram in your phone, and you may not. In any case, at this point it is clear that Telegram is much more than a simple clone WhatsApp that no one will remember in a couple of months. It is an application with its own personality, loaded with features and will probably continue to increase its popularity in times to come.
so, before starting to install applications that attempt I imitate the behavior of Chrome to Phone as Push2Droid, ask yourself “Do I really need a application, or can already do the same with some who have installed? “.
it’s fast, effective and can send all
the truth is I’ve been using Telegram like my own personal PushBullet months. He used to always have on hand both the Windows version like Android, it is only natural paste text, images or links in a chat and then can be accessed from mobile.
the cloud Telegram does the rest, transmitting your links, text, images and files to chat so you can retrieve information on any device. Technically you could do the same with WhatsApp Web, although experience is less rapid and satisfactory as it runs in the browser and you should have a false contact you write. In Telegram you can using any bot or create group for yourself.
as for the things that you can send to accessed from Telegram for Windows for access from Android, are:
- Texts and links, no size limit
- Images (even from the clipboard)
- voice clips
- files any
All that is left out of the list was available in Chrome to Phone is the shipping address. However, nothing prevents you copy the address and hit him in the chat. Android will open in Google Maps, if you so choose.
This is just one of the available options, but obviously there are hundreds of alternatives. There will be whoever is reluctant to use the cloud Telegram to send your data, whether confidential or not. What do you use to share content between your PC and your mobile phone? ¿Pushbullet, Push2Droid, Telegram or another completely different application?
