The Reading List is a similar concept to bookmarks but intended for reading material that you find online. At the time of this writing, it’s available in Chrome on the desktop (Windows, Mac, and Linux) and for iPhone and iPad. The feature is not available on Android. For this blog post, we will explore this feature for the iPhone and iPad.

Chrome for iPhone and iPad has two different ways to add web pages to your Reading List. It can either be done from Chrome or from another app.

Method 1 – Within Chrome

First, find a page to save for later, and then tap the Share icon in the address bar. Refer to below image:

That’s it! The page is now in your Reading List.

Method 2 – Use an App

The second method allows you to add things to the list from outside of Chrome. Now, find a news article or story that you would like to read later in any app. In our example, we are using Apple News. Next, find the Share icon in the app and tap it. See following image:
