Click to dial from browser

I'd love a browser plugin, so I can click a number on a webpage on the PC, perhaps tel:-links, and make the phone dial it.

Hi, you may go to AirDroid Web, click the + and create a contact name with phone number like tel://xxxxxxx. Double click the new contact icon and you'll be leaded to Skype or similar apps :)

Try if this helps.

Re: Click to dial from browser

I have seen this request before, and the same irrellevant answer.
You don't seem to understand the issue.

If I click on a tel:1-555-2020 link in the browser on the pc, I want airdroid the desktop app) to process this data and make my phone dial the number.

Just like a mailto:somebody@dom.invalid will start my mail program (or perhaps gmail,com) to handle it

Sorry, AirDroid now doesn't support this. Add tel://number will lead you to skype when you click it.

You can also add a contact shortcut which allows you to call that contact.

Well that's the meaning of a feature request

In the browser I can set up which external programs are to handle some protocols.

Just like mailto: can be sent to different mail programs, tel: can be sent to skype, or my pc-desktop voip phone program, it can be sent to the airdroid desktop application.

I have actually tried setting AirDroid.exe, AirCmd.exe, Helper.exe and Launcher,exe as handlers for tel:url, but naturally, they don't know what to do with the number. (Luckily most programs are not more clever than their programmers yet :-) )

Remember, I'm not talking about airdroid running in a browser, I'm talking about the desktop app.

We also really really need this. You already have a chrome extension - work it into that! Would be such a nifty extension and it doesn't seem that hard to do.
