Google’s updated feature that allows transfer of SMS OTPs from Your Phone to PC

While doing any banking transaction or online transaction on a laptop or computer, it is ensured that your phone is with you at that time to enter the received OTP. This need may be changed in the coming weeks or, let’s say, in days, at least for Android users.

Google is working on the WebOTP API, allowing any website to obtain the OTP from an SMS message and fill out the form automatically for the users with just one tap without switching any applications.

Google is working on allowing one-time passwords transfer via SMS from any phone to PC with the new chrome 93 update. This chrome 93 will support the Web one-time password interface, which means that the web browser will automatically detect and read the code received on the phone and enter it.

Users need an android phone, and both the desktop browser and the phone should be registered with the same google account. The vital requirement is that the website they are using is well suited to WebOTP technology. The feature doesn’t support Apple devices, and android phone users can now try this new feature on the beta page of google chrome. (https://developer.chrome.com/blog/cross-device-webotp/)

Requirements:

  • Android devices must contain Chrome 93 as a default browser.
  • Chrome 93 must run in the background on the Android device.
  • It would help if you were signed into the same google account for both mobile and desktop. 
  • An android device must have a google play services version of 20.30.12 or high.
