Google introduced a new feature called “Read Later” in Chrome canary v86. As the name suggests, it allows users to save the tab so that you can read them later. Once you enable this feature, a new button will be added to the Chrome Menu UI from where you can access the saved tab.

Soon, the feature will be available in Chrome stable channel for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome OS. In case, you’re interested in testing the same feature, then here’s how you can enable and start using the feature:

Click on the Relaunch button to apply the changes.

At this point, you have successfully enabled the feature. Unfortunately, Google is doing A/B testing and is not working for everyone. You can track the progress of the feature here.

Chrome for iPhone and iPad already has the feature out of the box which lets you save the tabs to read them later and offline.

Apart from this, the feature is already available in Chrome rivals such as Firefox and Microsoft Edge Browsers. Firefox introduced the same feature with the name ‘Pocket’ which lets users do the same thing as this Read-later feature.

Apart from this, the iPhone or iPad users can also use this feature. For that, right tap on Share option, and tap “Read Later”.
