Google Chrome for Android now lets you read web pages offline

Google has now introduced a new update for Chrome which will ease out the process of downloading web pages to read offline on Android.

The company mentioned in a blog post, “More than 45 million web pages are downloaded every week—and today we’re adding improvements to make it even easier to download pages.”

Chrome users will need to long press on any link and select “Download link.” This feature is available when you long press an article suggestion on the new tab page as well. In addition, the next time you run into Chrome’s offline dinosaur, you will see the “Download Page Later” button. If you tap it, Chrome will automatically download the page for you when you get back online.

Google has also made it easy to get back to the content which has been downloaded. When you open a new tab, you will see articles that you have downloaded tagged with a new offline badge. It will also show a list of the recent downloads on the page too.

“Now you’ll always have a ready-to-go list of pages or articles to read even if you are out of data for the month or lose the network in a dead zone. Update to the latest version of Chrome and tap the download icon on any page to get started”, Google mentioned in the blog post.
