Since the introduction of the Internet, Google has been an active participant in innovating new technologies and features. They have always tried to make their apps and services work seamlessly on all the available platforms. And now it is planning to take a step further towards innovating new possibilities. The latest feature to roll out is “Click to Call” connecting your desktop with your mobile for calling purposes.
This new feature will make things simpler for the users. Now one does not have to open any particular app on your mobile and make the call. They can simply connect the desktop from the mobile and proceed with the call.
How to use this feature?
Now calling a number from the desktop is just a few steps away, one click on desktop and two taps on your mobile and the work is done. As a part of the recent update on Google Chrome Beta version 78, all you need to do is, click on a hyperlinked phone number on your desktop screen. Then, right-click on that number, a dialogue box will appear that will ask you to choose the device from which you want to make a call. Further you will receive a notification with some digits on the selected device, tap on it and make the call. It is as simple as that.
It is not something very new, as Google was planning to release this feature back in August. But couldn’t launch it due to some reason. And now the “Click to call” feature is here and it should be enabled by default on Google Chrome Beta version 78. And if anyone is unable to access this feature, they can enable it through the flag: chrome://flags/#click-to-call-context-menu-selected-text. For now this feature works only on Android Pie and Android 10 devices.
