Offline Reading Just Got Easier On Chrome For Android

10 Mai 2017

People using mobile often face problems in connectivity. The update has only been rolled to the Google Chrome web browsing app for Android for now. The feature was a success. Now the company has further eased the process of reading web pages offline by introducing easier ways to save pages offline.

Google continues to improve its Chrome browser for Android. For users who save articles only once in a while, Chrome's offline reading option could even serve as an alternative to bookmarking webpages. The first major addition in the offline saving feature is the long press gesture. This eliminates the need for a user to actually visit a page prior to downloading the content for offline viewing. That web page, I mean? This is also applicable to article suggestion on new tab page. A quick tap opens the saved page in Chrome with a link to refresh with the online copy at the bottom.

Another problem has also been introduced by Chrome. It's especially important if you're in a place where the Internet is slow or no connection at all. If the page does not load, you can save it for later. These will be combined with recent downloads. There are also improvements to how the offline features work, including how to find saved pages. When a new tab is opened a list of downloaded articles will be visible, with those available offline having the badge present. We are not sure if this feature will be made available on the desktop version or not.

You need to update the latest version of Chrome to access this new feature.

Additionally, if you are accessing any website but couldn't connect because no connection is available then instead of a mythical dinosaurs that now appears there will be added a button that will allow the download of the same website later.
