Global tech giant Google has now made it much easier for you to download pages on the internet and read them in offline mode. This feature is now possible in Chrome on Android. Google in its blog post informed that over 45 million web pages are downloaded every week. This possibly the reason why the tech major has introduced new tools to make its easier to save pages and view them later. If you are a Google Chrome user on your Android smartphones, you can long press on any link and get the option to download the webpage. Google had introduced the ability to download any webpage in 2016, where users could view the whole page completely offline.
The new feature on Chrome is also available when users press on an article suggestion on the new tab page. Additionally, the company has added a “Download Page Later” option whenever the offline ‘dinosaur’ comes on the screen when users do not have an internet connection. Also, it is now easier for you to see the webpage if you have previously downloaded to read it offline. When you open a new tab, you can see articles which you have downloaded tagged with a new offline badge. You will also be provided with a list of recent downloads, which have been made available for easy access.
