Google Chrome - Install Browser Extensions on Your Phone

For Google Chrome users there are a number of extensions that are available to make your browsing experience more unique as well as being used as assistive tools for tasks.

You can use your phone to install free extensions:

  1. If you haven’t yet, sign in to Chrome on your phone.
  2. In a Chrome window, browse the web and find the extension you want.
  3. Tap Add to Desktop.
  4. In the window that appears, tap Add to Desktop.

The next time you open Chrome on your computer, you’ll see an alert that an extension was installed remotely. In some cases, you’ll also see the permissions the extension needs. To grant permissions and use the extension, click Enable extension.

If you have any questions, come by the Help Desk at Hardman & Jacobs Undergraduate Learning Center Room 105, call 646-1840, or email us at
