Walkie Talkie App VoicePing releases Chrome App to enable Desktop usage

VoicePing Chrome App for a Better Walkie Talkie Experience on Your Computer

VoicePing has recently developed a Google Chrome extension for a better desktop experience. With a Chrome App, you do not need to ask your IT administrator to install a new Windows program. As long as you have a supported Chrome browser, you can run VoicePing on your desktop.

This means you can Push to Talk, Copy and Paste Text and receive pictures from your desktop.  

Here is the step-by-step of how to install it on your desktop:

1. All the files required for installation can be found here.

2. From the above link, download file 2-ChromeAppRuntime.crx​ to your computer.

3.  Open Google Chrome and type chrome://extensions/ on the address bar to go into Chrome extension.

4. Drag the downloaded 2-ChromeAppRuntime.crx​ file to Chrome extension. There will be a prompt to install after a minute, choose Yes.

5. Download file 3-VoicePing280​ from the above link.

6.  On Chrome extension, choose Developer Mode.
