Google in its latest update for Chrome browser for Android, has introduced a new feature that will automatically download news articles while connected to a free or un-metered Wi-Fi connection so that the user can view them later. Over on the Google Blog, the company has unveiled a brand new feature for those in India, Brazil, Nigeria, Indonesia, and over 100 additional countries. The downloaded content will be available alongside users' downloaded content, and it will thus be available without an Internet connection.
Google likes to predict what its users might want, from which websites should have video autoplay enabled to the actions you might want to take on your photos, which may sometimes divide users as to whether these features are useful or invasive. One such product is Chrome for Android.
The new offline feature, that has been launched for Chrome for Android users in India and more than 100 other countries including Nigeria, Indonesia, and Brazil, offers a way to surf the Web even when you're not connected to a constant Internet connection. If users are signed into Chrome, they will get articles that are relevant for them based on their browsing history.
