Google Tone Shares Links With Everyone Within Earshot


This actually isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this. Chirp for Android and iOS works along a similar principle. In both cases, the services allow you to share a link with sound, which is handy when you’re presenting to an audience or sharing a link in a meeting.

Google Tone is designed with the browser in mind, so it’s much more likely to be useful in a setting where your audience has their laptops out, rather than just their phones.

  • I don’t know which social setting i can use this in. I wish they really worked on it to be used for classrooms and the lecturer constantly changes the webpages over the loudspeakers, but links-only is incomplete. Simply adding a chatroom and a generated chatroom-ID would really help this to be a back-and-forth conversational tool.
