Cue the trumpet fanfare!
We’re delighted to announce the launch of our Blrt Google Chrome web player, which means that Blrts now play on ANY computer.You can now play a @Blrt on any computer! Click To Tweet
How it works is as simple as 1, 2, 3:
- Whenever you send a Blrt to someone, an email notification is also generated, and sent to the Blrt recipient
- When the Blrt recipient opens that email on their computer, they can now just click on the ‘View Blrt’ button
- If their default web browser is Google Chrome, your Blrt will play for them right then and there
If the recipient doesn’t have Google Chrome set as their default web browser, DON’T WORRY! They will be prompted to copy the Blrt’s URL and paste it into Chrome.
Why Chrome? We hear you ask.
Excellent question! The answer is that while we’ve all been moaning about how bad Internet Explorer is (or should we say WAS), usage of the Chrome browser has been surging ahead in leaps and bounds. It will probably astonish you to learn that for August 2015, W3Schools reported that an (yes, I’m gonna say it…) astonishing 64% of web browser usage occurred in Google Chrome. Combined with the release of the Chromebook, which is essentially a computer with a Google Chrome operating system, the Google Chrome browser is set to take over the world just as the Google search engine has.

All about Blrt
Blrt is the perfect tool for fostering better collaboration and teamwork. Blrts can be created from websites, images or multi-page PDFs straight from your photo gallery, camera, email or Dropbox. Just select your documents, press record and start talking, zooming and drawing, and flipping pages as you need to.
Blrt’s operation is instinctual, and your multi-touch gestures are captured perfectly in sync with your voice, leaving no-one in any doubt about exactly what you mean. And while Blrts feel like videos, they’re not, so they use a fraction of the bandwidth, enabling them to be saved to the cloud, where they can be accessed from any device.
What’s more, you can send your Blrt to anyone. Recipients will see and hear exactly what you recorded. They can continue the dialogue and reply with their own audio-visual feedback, they can add documents, or they can just type a comment. The back and forth dialogue is saved, giving you a chronologically sequenced and permanently available thread of what has been agreed between all parties.
