Google Chrome has been updating its features from time to time, and currently, the company just announced another new offer that will genuinely excite its users. Google Chrome for Android already has the ability to save content for offline reading.
The browser can now automatically download relevant content as soon as it is connected to an unmetered Wi-Fi network. The relevance of the articles will be based on your browsing history as well as trending content in your location. You will receive a notification to let you know that the download is in progress. Once the articles were downloaded successfully, they will be ready for access even when you don’t have a connection.
This new feature is available to the latest version of Chrome for Android. Early this month, the company released Chrome 67 for Android with a horizontal tab switcher. This version offers new virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) APIs, including Generic Sensor API and WebXR Device API. These systems bring Web-based VR and AR experiences to various mobile devices.
This new feature is available to many locations such as Brazil, Nigeria, India, and 100 other countries worldwide. It is convenient for millions of users because they can already surf the Web even without constant internet connection.
Once you are signed in to your Chrome account, you will receive a notification that the content is related to the popular articles on your location. Then, after that prompt, the new feature will instantly download the articles based on your browsing history. Then, you can access them by going to the Downloads section of your mobile device. You only need to tap the three-dot button located at the upper-right portion of Google’s screen, and then, select the Downloads option.
It was in December 2016 when the Chrome for Android users initially received this feature. However, they have to initiate the download so they can select whatever articles they would like to read offline. At that time, they already have the ability to download music, videos, and even web pages.
Chrome has also improved the Download option by expanding the capacity of the music files. This expansion also allows users to download large videos. One thing that will surely please everyone is that the download progress will automatically pause when it experiences intermittent connection, but will resume as soon as it becomes stable.
In addition to this latest update, Chrome’s Data Saver feature will also give the users access to the downloaded content across the web, making sure that the quality will not be affected. It is even a significant advantage to Chrome users because they can save more data over slow connections.
Thankfully, Chrome developers have innovative ideas on how to deliver their service and make it more accessible to millions of users who rely on Google day by day. These improvements are just a few of the features we would love, and we can’t wait to see more in the near future.
