Google Tone broadcasts URLs to any device within earshot
A new Chrome extension can instantly share URLs among nearby devices, using sound to broadcast the information to microphones.
Google Tone is an experimental feature that could be used to easily share browser pages, search results, videos and other pages among devices in an office, classroom or family setting, according to Google Research.
While it can't pass through walls or travel beyond earshot, the system is designed to make sharing browser URLs as easy as talking to people nearby.
