New Chrome Update Lets Android Users to Surf Web Without Internet

Google Chrome tips and tricks

In the latest version of Chrome for Android, the new offline-specific feature is also available. Google has thus introduced a new way for Chrome on Android users in more than 100 countries across the globe to surf the web even when they don't have a constant internet connection. The automatically downloaded content will be available along with all of the downloaded content available for access anytime, without an internet connection. 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.

That screenshot is from Canary, the least stable of the Chrome builds but the only one I've now got the functionality on. And if you're signed into your Google account in Chrome, then articles that get downloaded in the background will be geared towards your personal interests, based on your browsing history.

However, it can be frustrating and hard to access the web when you lose connectivity or spend days disconnected.

Want to browse the news but don't have connection to the internet? But in May 2017, Chrome received a dedicated "Download Page Later" option that made it more convenient to download and view web pages for offline use.

Google hasn't detailed what sort of "relevant articles" will be automatically downloaded on the basis of most popular content in a particular location. According to Google India's blog post, it will be available in "India, along with more than 100 countries including Nigeria, Indonesia, and Brazil", confirming the feature's focus on emerging markets. There isn't any workaround to enable the new experience.
