With the new "Send tab to yourself" feature in Google Chrome, you can quickly submit tabs between all your Chrome devices. This feature, available through a hidden marker in Google Chrome, is available in the latest stable version of Chrome.
How It Works
Of course, the History Without Hidden Markers page allows you to access open tabs on other devices when you use Chrome Sync – but this new feature is faster and faster.
Once you've turned it on, clicking the right mouse button on a web page will display the new option "Send to your devices". It lists all the Chrome browsers you're signed in to with your Google Account – on Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, Android, and even iPhone and iPad. Select a device to send a Chrome tab to this device.
Remember the old Google Chrome for Phone browser extension that lets you send tabs from the Chrome browser on your computer to your Android phone? It's similar – but you can also send tabs between your computers.
Like all flags, this feature is also in progress. It can be changed or removed at any time. Google may soon launch this feature as a stable feature that does not require a flag. However, it is now available in the stable version of Google Chrome 76.

Enabling the "Send Tab to yourself" option
This option is available as a flag. Append
chrome: // flags to the Chrome address bar and press Enter. Search for "Send tab" in the search field.
Various options are displayed. You must enable at least the "Send tab to yourself" and "Send tab to yourself" options by clicking the boxes to the right of the options and selecting "Enabled".
You may also want to enable the "Send tab" option to self history "to display the sent tabs on your history page, and" Send tab to self broadcast ", which lets you send a tab to all devices instead of them to send to individual devices. (The broadcast flag did not seem to work when we tested it.)
If you want to use this feature without enabling Chrome Sync, then enable the "Send me" tab: enable use if you want logged in regardless of sync status "option.
tab When you're done, click" Restart Now "to restart your Chrome browser with flags enabled.
Repeat This will happen on all Chrome browsers that you use on different devices, so if you enable the Send to myself only option on a single device, you will not be able to send tabs to other devices Chrome does not have any flags for iPhone and iPad, but can still receive sent tabs.
So sen tabs between your devices
After activating the flags When you restart your web browser, you have access to the feature in two places.
You can right-click a Web page to display the Send to Your Devices menu and click one of the devices to send the tab to it.
The same option is available in the Omnibox, also known as an address bar. Click once in the bar. On the right side of the bar, the "Send this page" icon appears to the left of the bookmark icon (star). Click on it to see a list of devices and the time of their last activation.
A notification is displayed while sending The tab.
A notification is also displayed on the other device. Click or tap the notification to immediately open the sent tab in Chrome.
On some platforms, this will work differently. For example, you will not receive notification on the iPhone. However, at the bottom of Chrome's New Tab page, the message "Tab Received" appears. Tap Open to open the tab you're sending.
If you do not see one of your devices in the list here, make sure the latest version of Google Chrome is enabled with those flags that you're signed in to all of your devices in the same Google Account ,
Other features are also available through Chrome flags. For example, Google Chrome has a hidden "reader mode," which works just like the read modes available in Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Microsoft Edge.
