Web Share Extension

The Web Share Extension is an experimental extension for Google Chrome and other Chromium-based browsers. It uses the navigator.share() API to share the current web page or selected text snippet to the supported native apps on your device.

This extension currently works only on Windows and ChromeOS platforms, and requires Chrome 89+. Install it from this Chrome Web Store page.

  1. Great extension, can it add an image preview un email body like ms edge. Thanks,you have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for an extension to invoke native share.. of course it wasnt possible until chromium enabled the feature.. using it in vivaldi.

    Also for some reason, the context menu commands sometimes appear and sometimes not.. like on the page, or the toolbar button.
