Save Web Pages In Google Chrome For Reading Them Later With Reading List

Google Chrome with version 89 and beyond now includes the Reading list feature. What it does is let you save the web pages to read later as a Reading list. This is useful when you need to prioritize when browsing them. It also saves these offline that can then be read later.

To use this feature, first, check the Chrome version by typing in the address bar:

chrome://settings/help

accessing Google Chrome settings

Google Chrome version number

Any version that is 89 and above will already show a Reading list button.

It is a useful tab management feature in Google Chrome that helps you put away specific web pages by organizing them into a Reading list that can be revisited later.

To turn off the Reading list button from being displayed, right-click on the bookmarks bar and remove the tick next to the Show reading list option.
