Tip of the Week: How to Share a Web Page Between Your Phone and Workstation

If you’ve ever been reading a web page on one device and wanted an easy way to view it on another, we’re here to help.

How often have you browsed the web on your phone and stumbled upon genuinely useful information for work? Perhaps a tip or valuable information you wanted to access from your workstation later? There’s actually a very easy way to make this happen, thanks to the multi-platform nature of the Google Chrome browser.

Let’s go over how to access the same web page you were viewing on your workstation or mobile device on the other one.

Chrome Offers a Few Options, in Terms of Pushing Web Pages Between Devices

First, let’s assume that you’re on one device, and want to continue viewing a page on the other. If you are signed into the same Google account in both places, you can simply view your browsing history, as it tracks activity on all devices logged in.

  • From the desktop, open Chrome and press Ctrl + H to access your History. If using your smartphone, open the Chrome app and access the three-dot menu, selecting Recent tabs. You’ll see your complete browsing history from everywhere you’re signed into that Chrome account, allowing you to retrieve the page you were browsing.
  • If you’re presently reading something and want to proactively push it from one device to another, you can do that as well. From the desktop version of Chrome, you’ll see a small icon on the right side of the address bar that looks like an arrow coming out of a corner. Clicking this icon (or right-clicking the tab’s title) gives you the option to Send it to your devices. You’ll be given a list of devices—computers and Android devices alike—where you’re signed in. From Android, tap into the three-dot menu and select Share. A panel will appear, where you can select Send to your devices.
