Our friends over at Engadget have published a kick ass guide on how to take advantage of Froyo’s cloud to device messenger capability. You may recall the demonstration during the Android keynote at Google I/O, where they pushed directions to their phone from Google Maps with the click of a button. Well, someone hacked together a quick app and accompanying Chrome and Firefox extensions that will allow you to do the same.
You’re not just limited to pushing directions though – as of right now you can also push URL’s and YouTube links. Every item you push will automatically open in its corresponding application – so directions open in Maps, URL’s in the browser, etc.
