You can often search for a phone number on your computer and then dial it from your handset. However, in an effort to make this easy, the latest Chrome beta update on the desktop now had a feature that lets you send phone numbers from your browser to your Android phone. A few weeks ago, Google introduced a feature that lets you share links between your desktop and your phone. Following the latest feature, the company is now testing a similar feature for phone numbers in Chrome Beta v78.

If you are wondering how the function will work, all you have to do is click on the hyperlinked phone number or highlight. Now right-click that number and you can decide to call from your phone. But, as for now, the feature works with any hyperlinked phone number, such as those used for customer care or help numbers on phones. Clicking on a number in Chrome Beta 78 will open a query in the address bar asking you which device you want to call. You will receive a notification with the digits on your mobile device.

As reported by XDA Developers, Google was preparing for this feature back in August. Click-to-call should be enabled by default on Chrome Beta 78. If you can't access it, enable it with the flag: chrome: // flags / # click-to-call-context-menu-selected-text. The feature currently works with Android Pie and Android 10 devices.
