Google Chrome for Android Gets Preview Option

Google Chrome for Android has received a Preview Page option where it lets users see the contents of a page before opening it on their phones.

On iOS, both Safari and Edge already default to previewing a webpage when users long-press a link, and by default neither require the additional step of selecting “Preview page” from a menu.

To preview a link in Chrome’s Android app:

  1. Long-press a hyperlink to open a pop-up menu
  2. Select “Preview page.” 
  3. A smaller tab will open over the current page. You can scroll through the preview and view its content like normal without leaving the page you’re already on.
  4. If you want to load a previewed page in its own tab, tap the arrow icon in the upper right. Press the “X” icon to close a preview window.

Google has been working on this feature for the past two years and finally rolling out the feature to Chrome 89 for Android, according to a report.
