Get on the same page with Tone
Sometimes in the course of exploring new ideas, we'll stumble upon a technology application that gets us excited. Tone is an experimental Chrome extension that makes sharing digital things with nearby people as easy as talking to them.
Tone broadcasts the URL of the current tab to any machine within earshot that also has the extension installed. We’ve found it useful for quickly sharing documents with everyone in a meeting, contributing relevant links without interrupting conversations, and maybe even the occasional rickroll (https://goo.gl/smp6ig
To get started, first install the Tone extension for Chrome (http://g.co/tone
). Then simply open a tab with the URL you want to share, make sure your volume is on, and press the Tone button. Your machine will then emit a short sequence of beeps. Nearby machines receive a clickable notification that will open the same tab. Getting everyone on the same page has never been so easy! Learn more at http://goo.gl/369hmn
