If you’re one of the many frustrated consumers who has been unable to snag a Google Nexus 6 by Motorola because you missed the 2-second window when it was actually available for order on the Play Store, then this Chrome extension is for you: It’s called Auto Refresh Plus, and so far, it’s helped a handful of lucky people get the phone.
It works by allowing you to refresh the page automatically at whatever time interval you want – as little as 1 second. But what sets this apart from other auto-refresh extensions that that it can scan the webpage for specific words or phrases and stop refreshing once a change is detected. For example, you can set it to stop refreshing when the words “Out of inventory” are no longer on the webpage. Alternately, you can have it stop refreshing once it detects the words “Add to cart,” with the same result.
To do this, you just need to go into the settings before turning auto-refresh on, and adjust the “page monitor” section. You can also set pop up notifications, and even a sound alert.
Then, just sit back and wait.
Google says that more Nexus 6 stock should come each Wednesday, so make sure to get this set up and ready to go by then.
