Google has released a new Chrome extension for controlling a battery-operated radio from within the browser.
The Chrome extension is titled “Battery operated radio” and it’s the first of its kind to be made available for developers.
The extension will let users control a battery equipped radio from their Chrome browser with a mouse, keyboard, or an onscreen keyboard.
The extension works by adding an “Operator” button to the bottom of the radio and enabling “Battery Operated Radio” mode.
To enable the mode, click on the button, and the radio will be turned on.
To stop the radio, click the “Off” button.
The mode works with most radio types, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), Bluetooth, and WiFi radio.
To access the Mode, the “Operators” button will appear above the radio.
Users can then enter commands to activate or deactivate the radio or select which radio type they’d like to control.
Users also have the option to toggle between “Battery On” and “Battery Off.”
The extension also has a feature called “Power On,” which lets users turn the radio off automatically when a user clicks on the “Power Off” button on the radio’s radio controller.
The radio’s power will automatically be restored when the user clicks back on the Radio Controller.
Users can also control the radio from the radio controller’s settings menu.
To do this, open the “Radio Settings” tab and click on “Controls.”
From there, the radio can be controlled with a button or by tapping on the slider at the bottom right of the Radio Settings page.
