Google is the company which has been on the top when it comes to introduce some creative stuff , So today google launched an experimental Chrome extension today that lets you share the URL from your current browser tab with anybody within earshot.

The Extension is called Tone , So when it is coming out ? Tone ready for you to go and download it right now from Chrome Web Store. Google tone uses sound to transmit the information and uses the speakers and microphones now typically available on any laptop.

As this thing uses sound then there have be limitations the first thing which strikes my mind is the information will not carry far , as any object in between can simply block it .

To fix that the version that launched today now uses a “dual-tone multi-frequency signaling” system, similar to what telephone systems use. That means, you will hear a short sequence of beeps when you hit the ‘Tone’ button in Chrome after installing the extension. The machines that pick up the sound will pop up a notification and clicking on that will open the shared URL.

Google already uses a similar technology to allow phones to talk to its Chromecast devices over audio, but that’s happening outside of the reach of human hearing and uses a different technology.

This is really a cool move by google as sharing url is the big pain . So if you want to give Tone a shot then you can Download Tone Here .
