Google Chrome’s Reading List feature can help you save articles for later, so you never miss something good.
This is for the iPhone and iPad
What Is the Reading List
The Reading List is exactly what it sounds like; a list of things to read. It’s a similar concept to the bookmarks that we have used in web browsers, but with a more focused purpose.
Instead of saving an article or story to a folder in your bookmarks, you can put it in the Reading List. The list syncs to your Google account if you are logged into Chrome, so it’s available on your desktop and smartphone. That makes it a little easier to access than bookmarks.
The other benefit over bookmarks is the offline feature. Pages saved to your Reading List can be read without an internet connection at your convenience. You do need an internet connection to add to the list.
Chrome for iPhone and iPad offers two ways to add pages to your Reading List. It can be done from Chrome or from another app.
For the first method, first, open Chrome on your iPhone or iPad and find a page to save for later. Now, tap the Share icon in the upper right-hand corner. Refer to below image:
Next, select Read Later from the menu. See below image:
That’s it! The page is in your Reading List.
For the second method, find a web page or link that you would like to read later in any app. Now, tap the Share icon in upper right-hand corner. See following image:
Next, find Chrome in the app row and select it. Refer to below image:
Now, from the Chrome menu, tap Read Later. See below image:
Next, to access the Reading List on your iPhone or iPad, open Chrome and tap the three-dot menu icon at the very bottom right-hand corner. See following image:
Accessing Your Reading List
Now, select the Reading List option from the menu. The number indicates unread pages. Refer to below image:
Next, the Reading List will open with Unread pages at the top and Pages You’ve Read (if any) at the bottom. Pages marked with a green check are ready to read offline. See below image where we have only one Unread page:
Now, tap Edit in the bottom right-hand corner to manage the list. See following image:
From here, you can select page(s) and delete or mark them as read. To mark them as read, checkmark an entry and tap the Mark Read blue link at the bottom of your screen. Refer to below image:
If you want to mark page(s) as Unread, checkmark an entry and tap the Mark Unread blue link at the bottom of your screen. See below image:
The Reading List is a great feature if you use Chrome on multiple devices. Rather than depending on a separate third-party app, you can save websites for later reading right inside the browser.
