Aimed at countries where mobile connectivity tends to be more limited, such as India and Brazil, the new feature will automatically download news articles whenever the user is connected to free or unmetered WI-Fi connections. This is why Google started building offline capabilities in Google Chrome for Android. Users can get access to the relevant articles on their browser without any constant internet. Currently, the downloading feature for offline reading is limited to articles alone. Google Chrome on Android will automatically download articles when you're connected to Wi-Fi so that you can read the content offline, Cnet reported. This feature will be soon available in India.
The automatically downloaded content would be available alongside all of the downloaded content available for access anytime, even without an Internet connection.
The new update of Chrome will be launched for Android users from India and almost 100 other countries like Nigeria, Indonesia, and Brazil. If you select the three dots located on the top right-hand side, you will view the option captioned Downloads. This update for phones allows you to work when you are not connected to the Internet.
The official Google India Blog claims that the browser will download only relevant news based on what is popular in your region. Google's Android offline product manager said, "If you sign on Chrome then you will find related articles on the basis of your browsing history". With the "surf web without internet" feature, the browser will download articles which are relevant based on what content is most popular in your location.
If the data saver mode on, Google Chrome will only download content which is assumed to be relevant.
