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.
This is for the iPhone and iPad using Google Chrome
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:
Next, select Read Later from the menu. See 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:
Now, find Chrome in the app row and select it. If you do not see Chrome, tap the three-dot More menu. Refer to below image:
Now, find Chrome from the app list and tap it. See below image:
Next, from the Chrome menu, tap Read Later. See following image:
To access the Reading List on your iPhone or iPad, first, open Chrome and tap the three-dot Menu icon at the bottom. Refer to below image:
Next, select Reading List from the menu. You will notice a number that indicates unread pages. See below image:
Now, the Reading List will open with Unread pages at the top and Pages You’ve Read at the bottom. Pages marked with a green check are ready to read offline. See following image:
Next, tap Edit in the bottom corner to manage the list. Refer to below image:
From here, you can select pages and delete or mark them as read. See below image:
The Reading List is a nice, simple alternative to apps that provide similar services. It all happens right inside of Chrome without any additional software.
