Information overload is real. You don’t always have time to read a 5000 word article or juicy interview when it pops up on your Twitter feed. And even if you have the time, you might find yourself underground between metro stops, stuck in a dead zone, or not having a Wi-Fi connection.
The most reliable way to catch up on your digital reading is to make sure it is saved and accessible for offline reading. Many apps and browsers can help you save it for later. Here’s how to download what you want and keep it readable even without an internet connection.
Save a webpage in Chrome
For Chrome desktop users, the easiest built-in way to save a webpage for offline reading is to download the page as a file. Open the three-dot menu at the top right and select More Tools > Save Page As. You can also right-click anywhere on the page and Save as or use the hotkey Ctrl + S in Windows or Command + S on macOS.
Chrome can save the entire webpage, including text and media items, or just the HTML text. Download your preferred file to your computer and read the page at any time, even without an internet connection.
Save a web page to the Android app by opening the three-dot menu icon and tapping the download icon at the top. A banner at the bottom of the screen indicates when the page has been made available for offline reading. Click Open to view a static version of the page. Access downloads later by opening the three-dot menu and clicking . to tap Downloads.
Chrome on iOS and iPadOS
To make an article available for offline reading in the Chrome app on iPhone or iPad, tap the Part icon (an upward-facing arrow) and select Add to Reading List. Open the browser’s three-dot menu and select Newsletter for expert advice on getting the most out of your technology.
