PushBullet-Thumb

PushBullet has made a name for itself by making it painless to move files from your computer onto your phone. Now the app is taking a bold step towards making it just as easy to move data in the opposite direction. The latest update to version 11.3 introduces push-to-Chrome, a promised feature that should make it possible to get links, notes, pictures, and other content onto any computer running Chrome. The update also introduces the ability to push lists for the first time, and when you create a new push using the app, you can now select what you want to push directly.

To get up and running, you will need to install the latest version of the PushBullet Chrome extension, version 1.4.20. Anything you push to Chrome will show up as a notification, just as it does on Android.

Content will open up in the appropriate locations, with links going to tabs, addresses launching Google Maps, and pictures pop up immediately. And after you've accessed any of these notifications, you can still pull them up on the PushBullet website.

What's new:

  • You can now push to Chrome on your computer with our updated Chrome extension!
  • We've made pushing pictures and files easier
  • It's now possible to push lists from in the app
  • Other little bug fixes :)

All of this is free to use, so head over to the Play Store and give it a try. As for what's coming next, check out our in-depth chat with the folks behind PushBullet.

    I can't get push-to-Chrome to work. Have the latest version of the extension, and have the latest version of the app. What am I doing wrong? o_0

    • Jordi

      You don't have the latest version of the app, but Play Store makes you believe it is
      I have forced the update through the website and now I'm pushing from my N7 to Chrome

      Is Chrome an option in your drop down for places to push?

      Make sure you have both the Android app and the Chrome extension up-to-date.

      Android: 11.3
      Chrome: 1.4.20

      If the Chrome extension isn't up to date, you can force it by enabling "Developer mode" which will add the button "Update extensions now".

        There is no chrome option. Installed the extension, updated the app and signed in too. Now what?

    Awesome update. A must have app for me.

    Try to restart chrome if its not working.

    Since there was no response on the in depth interview, I'll ask again:

    What about push-to-Firefox?

    • guzba

      We've been sprinting to get push-to-Chrome out and we'll look at what we can do with Firefox as soon as this settles down. Don't let us off the hook :)

    • Daniel Streit

      Just share to Firefox sync and hit Sync on your pcs Firefox

  • xnifex

    Hopefully this comes to Firefox as well. Any word on fixing the missing pushes from the last update?

    • guzba

      That should also be fixed with this most Android app update. If it isn't let me know!

      • xnifex

        I love that you're on here & reddit. Love your app! I'll update & check for the missing pushes

      • xnifex

        So I updated & don't see any of the missing pushes on my Nexus 7. At this point though I have forgotten what they even were, so it's okay.

      I've been doing this stuff for a while using Firefox sync. You can share pages, etc with other Firefox installations registered with your Sync account. That takes care of mobile device to desktop. From desktop to mobile, I use Chrome to Phone and the Fox to Phone add-on, which works really well.

  • Booyabobby

    Update works perfectly. Thank you PushBullet devs!

  • Rovindra Singh

    Works like a charm, can't believe I have the added functionality of pushing to Chrome directly from my phone!

  • Meow

    It just pushes from the phone back to the same phone in a loop, totally useless
