How to use Chrome’s built-in reading list

Welcome to TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.

There’s a lot of internet and there are a ton of articles to read. But you can’t catch up on all of them in one day, so it’s important to have a system to save or bookmark them somewhere.

I’ve been using the Pocket app for years to mark interesting long reads, and read them later on my iPad before going to the bed. But if you don’t want to install another app on your phone, you can just use Chrome‘s reading list feature. It’s easy to use, and it’s available across devices.

Here’s how you can utilize it:

  • If you’re reading an article on the desktop version of Chrome, hit the bookmark button.
  • Select the “Add to reading list” option.
