Chrome on Android will automatically download articles to read offline

Unfortunately, in the latest update to Chrome for Android, Google has also removed the option to disable suggested articles in the homepage of the app, which means that suggested articles will always be shown even when they aren't relevant in many cases. Over on the Google Blog, the company has unveiled a brand new feature for those in India, Brazil, Nigeria, Indonesia, and over 100 additional countries. New feature automatically downloads any information, then the user can see it, if you cannot connect to the Internet. Nonetheless, the initiative is a step in the right direction to make content available to more users across the globe and we hope that Google has similar ideas in the pipeline. One such product is Chrome for Android.

Google has recently launched the latest feature for Android device users in India. Chrome selects content based on browser history, bookmarks of the user.

"It can be frustrating and hard to access the web when you lose connectivity or spend days disconnected". The browser at that time added the ability to download music, videos, and full web pages.

When youre connected to free, unmetered WiFi, Chrome will automatically download relevant articles, based on what content is most popular in your location.

The feature is already available in the latest version of Chrome for Android for users in over 100 countries.

Want to browse the news but don't have connection to the internet?

Google hasn't detailed what sort of "relevant articles" will be automatically downloaded on the basis of most popular content in a particular location. Currently, the downloading feature for offline reading is limited to articles alone.
