How to activate the Chrome reader on Android?

Tired of the superfluous? Want to focus only on content from your favorite sites? All from your mobile? No problem, it's perfectly possible if you are using Chrome for Android , and if you are thinking of activating the reader . How to do ? Good news, that is precisely the purpose of this article.

But before going any further, perhaps we should take the time to recall what a reader is. Because hey, not everyone necessarily knows the thing, eh.

How To Activate The Chrome Reader On Android

Activating the Chrome reader is not very complicated.

In reality, it is quite simple and it is quite simply a function which will allow your browser to extract the content of an article to display it in full page, and thus to remove all the superfluous by the same occasion. The superfluous, and therefore the interface of the site.

Everything happens in the flags, of course

The objective, finally, is to allow the Internet user – here the mobile user – to concentrate on the substantive marrow of the posts published by his favorite sites.

Not bad is not it ? Certainly, and it is precisely for this reason that Safari and Firefox offer a function of this type. Chrome, it also integrates one but it is unfortunately not activated by default and it will therefore be necessary to put your hands in the sludge to take advantage of it. Rest assured, however, because the procedure to follow is not super complicated either.

Just follow the next steps:

  • Launch Chrome for Android.
  • Type in the address bar.
  • Enter the expression chrome: // flags and validate your choice.
  • A new window appears, listing all the experimental functions of the browser.
  • Scroll down the list to the option titled “Enable Player Mode Toolbar Icon”.
  • Tap on the “Activate” link located just below.
  • Go down the page a little further.
  • Tap on the “Relaunch Now” button.

There, your browser will close and reappear in the process. All you have to do is go to the site of your choice and tap on the new icon at the top to activate the reader.

Nice, but the only downside in the story is that the function is not yet available for all sites.
