Chirp is a free extension that lets you share a selected text, link, or an image from your Google Chrome browser to Android without any hassle. For sharing the item, it produces a chirping sound that your phone can detect to receive the shared item. However, you also need to install Android app of Chirp to receive the item. This extension works even if your PC and Android phone are connected to separate networks.
Many times it happens that we found some useful quote, webpage, or image that we want to save on our phone for later use. However, to do so, we either need to use some third-party apps to wirelessly transfer data or connect our smartphone with PC using the data cable. In such cases, this extension can come in handy.

Recently, Google Tone extension also came out with similar purpose and functionality, but Chirp is more powerful as Google Tone is able to share links only.
