Google Updates Chrome To Include Tab Syncing Across Multiple Devices
Google’s latest Stable release of Chrome now includes the ability to sync tabs across multiple devices. As long as you are signed into Chrome, you’ll now have the ability to take your tabs with you when switching between work, home, mobile (with Chrome for Android beta), etc. Accessing them is quick and easy thanks to the new “Other devices” menu located on the New Tab page, and even the back and forward buttons will work, allowing you to pick up browsing right where you left off.
To access this new feature, you’ll have to update your Chrome browser to the new Chrome 19. You can download Chrome 19 by following this link or you can update your current version by clicking on the wrench icon in Chrome and clicking on “About Google Chrome.” Google has stated that while Chrome will be updated to the latest Stable version over the next few days, the tab sync feature will be rolled out more gradually over the coming weeks. So, if you don’t see the new feature right away, don’t worry, it should be coming within the next couple weeks.
I had no problems downloading the newest version of Chrome and the tab sync feature is present and working, so hopefully you’ll have the same luck. Below is a quick Google video showing how the new tab sync feature works, but I’ll be uploading a hands-on a little later for a better look at how to sync your tabs across multiple devices. Cheers!
