Google Chrome 77 update rolls out a new feature that will allow you to share webpages across devices. If you have the updated version of Google Chrome installed on your devices, you can easily send the web page that you are currently browsing to other devices. Here's what you need to do. Firstly, ensure that you have the updated version of the Google Chrome browser installed on the computer. All you need to do is right-click on the browser and a new context menu will appear. You should see an option to send the web page to other devices.

For example, let's say you are reading some article on your desktop computer or laptop and you want to continue reading the same article on a smartphone device of yours. In that case, you can use the 'send to device' feature. When you send a webpage to your mobile device, you will receive a notification alert containing a link to the web page. Now, tap the notification on your phone and continue reading the same article on your mobile device.
