Google Chrome is getting a really handy new feature – but you could be missing out


The latest stable version of Google Chrome, Chrome 57, has just been released by Google and it includes several new features.

It has been made available for macOS which suggests that Chrome 57 for iOS may not be too far away.

One of the features is a new Reading List that would allow Chrome users to save articles and webpages that they may wish to peruse when they are offline.

A similar feature is already available on Apple’s Safari browser.

In leaked images that recently appeared online, you could see that the Reading List could be accessed from a menu in the top right corner, the three-dot symbol.

Here you will find saved pages and articles in queue sorted into two sections ‘Unread’ and ‘Pages You’ve Read’.

It is easy to manage and the sorting option is not yet available on Safari.

The downside is that the Reading list is not supported on desktop versions although there are several popular third-party extensions that provide similar functionality. 

The Reading List feature is available on the beta version of the latest Google Chrome for iOS so this suggests that there may be some changes prior to its general release.

Chrome for iOS is available to download from the iOS App Store.
