With the recent release of the Droid 2, most of the Android news has been buzzing about this excellent new device available on Verizon. However, a pretty significant new feature was launched last week on Android called Chrome to Phone that allows you to send a link for whatever you’re viewing on your PC to your phone and Audible (audiobook provider) officially came out of beta and launched their app on the Android Market.
Back on Thursday, Google announced to a small crowd a few new features of Android they felt like highlighting. Perhaps the most significant of those announcements was Chrome to Phone, a chrome extension and Android app that work together almost like magic. During a Google developer’s “free time” he developed this app for use on any Android phone running 2.2.
To use the app, download the Chrome to Phone app from the Android Market and grab the Chrome extension from the gallery. It really is as simple as that. If you’re still not convinced, here’s a quick video explaining how things work further:
For what has been in beta for a few months now, the Audible app for Android has been deemed impressive by many Audiobook lovers. Now, the app is officially ready for primetime as it is now available from the Android Market officially.
The app is free to download, but you will need to purchase books if you so choose to use the app as Audible is a fully featured audiobook store. If you’d like to check it out for yourself, just search ‘Audible’ on the Android Market now.
