Description from extension meta

Broadcast any URL to computers within earshot.

Description from store Google Tone turns on your computer's microphone (while the extension is on) and uses your computer's speakers to exchange URLs with nearby computers connected to the Internet. You can use Google Tone to send the URL for any web page, including news stories, pictures, documents, blog posts, products, YouTube videos, recipes—even search results. Any computer within earshot (including over a phone or Hangout) that also has the Google Tone extension installed and turned ON can receive a Google Tone notification. You need to be logged into your Google account to use Google Tone, and your Google profile name and picture will be displayed with the URL in a Google Tone notification. To receive a URL with Google Tone, Chrome needs to keep your microphone on. Google Tone may not work in loud spaces, over a distance, with a poor Internet connection, or on computers without a microphone or with a microphone incapable of detecting sound broadcast by Google Tone. By installing Google Tone, you agree to the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/. Google Tone collects anonymous usage data in accordance with Google’s Privacy Policy.

  • (2023-10-07) Amythicdragon: 5/5 but what does red speaker mean?
  • (2023-09-26) Ari Kotler: Almost perfect but receiving and sending activation settings should be seperate.
  • (2023-08-20) Zitian Yang: Whenever I tried to use it on my school chromebook it kept on redirecting to myaccount.google.com. Why?
  • (2022-11-10) Mariana Barbosa Pires: Vocês deveriam ser mais criativos na hora de inventar cortina de fumaça pra tortura e perseguição, que é exatamente o que significa essa extensão! Pobres até na criação de armas!
  • (2022-08-31) J. Vallon: I didn't like it because there is no option to deactivate the constant listening. I am not comfortable with this extension being constantly listening to sounds around me. I would rather activate it manually when someone is braodcasting an url.
  • (2021-11-16) Gustavo Fernandes: I really love this concept. I am just wondering if you can put an option for the mic stay off and the user manually click for receiving as needed...

  • (2020-09-25) Thinkronicity: Person 1: Did you hear that? Person 2: Ya! Person 1: What the hell was was that? Person 2: I think it was the toaster talking to the freezer about Amazon... As much of it as I understood. Person 1: Well at least they talk, it would be really creepy if they didn't
  • (2020-09-21) J Elliston: I couldn't find somewhere to submit a bug report so I'll put this her. After it broadcasts the url it plays a ~17 kHz tone for a couple seconds which is painful.
  • (2020-09-08) mohamad ezeddeen: غالبا لا تعمل
  • (2020-06-26) Mikhail Benette Ranedo Ucat: mega shoutout
  • (2020-04-02) David Rivers: I like this extension, it feels like the future. It's also a creative use of technology, kind of like it was created "just to be creative" I love that Google are developing technology that is re-inventing our world but also creating things that are fun and playful.
  • (2020-03-23) Natán Parrondo: Muy buena
  • (2020-02-29) YT not working Pinterest name Kitty Deku: I don't get the point of this, every time I click on it nothing happens except the fact that it said "Tone couldn't hear itself" if you guys can, please tell me what is wrong with this thing, I have no use of it other wise.
  • (2020-02-05) Ning Cao: good!
  • (2019-12-11) khaki: Super handig om snel URLs te delen
  • (2019-10-06) Marek Kurzawa (chipnet): C-3PO does not understand this dialect, R2D2 is broken and desperate. ;)
  • (2019-09-11) ethan: does this cast to everyone that has it or just to people on the network?
  • (2019-06-28) 栾学超: 再也不用把连接复制到微信里 传给别人了
  • (2019-05-08) Angela Ackley: Google Tone is fantastic when it works! As a teacher, I am constantly pushing out websites for my students to visit. Tone saves me TONS of time in class copying/pasting URL's for students. However, Tone frequently stops transmitting. If I restart Chrome, Tone is back up and running! Please, please, please work out the bugs. This is a wonderful teaching tool!
  • (2019-04-04) Daniel Ivanov: THIS IS AWESOME LOLOLO
  • (2019-03-18) Boris Axelrod: Замечательное приложение! Но к сожалению никак не соображу, почему перестал работать. Микрофон есть, наушники отключены. переустановка не помогает. Печаль
  • (2019-03-15) Even though it makes an earpiercing and deafening sound, it works efficiently and nice. The kids keep abusing it, though.
  • (2019-03-06) Michael Cañoneo: update all this problem date and years..
  • (2019-03-05) This app is a funny way to troll my friends and for them to troll me (only a little). Although we sometimes use it for stupid things like trapping eachother on tabs, its very useful for facebook and sharing youtube videos.
  • (2019-02-09) David Lesage: intégré cette application a android et iphone !
  • (2019-01-05) David Rivers: Makes my mac sound like R2D2, I can imagine there could be all kinds of novel, fun and as well useful ways to use this neat feature. Love that Google keeps it fun and fresh too (R2D2 never goes out of style)
