Earlier this year in September, Google introduced a slew of new features on Chrome beta for Android to make surfing better. The company added a ‘Data Saver’ mode to ensure webpages load faster on slower 2G connection. The feature compresses images and texts, while also saving 60 percent data. Google had also added ‘download’ feature for offline viewing. Now, the feature has finally come out of beta and is rolling out to a wider audience.

The latest Chrome for Android (v55.0.2883.84) brings performance and stability improvements, along with the ‘download’ feature. Google has also made improvements to contextual search UI and RAM usage optimizations. Android devices that have less than 1GB of RAM, will now use 35 percent less memory than before, Google mentioned on its blog.

The new Chrome for Android app also allows you to download music, videos and full web pages for offline viewing. There are certain restrictions though – you won’t be able to download videos from video streaming sites such as YouTube and Vimeo among others. You will only be able to download videos that have download button at the bottom.

How to download webpages and videos on Google Chrome for Android
Open Chrome and visit the web page that you want to download. On the top right corner, tap on the ‘three dots’ and you will see the download icon just besides the back and bookmark icon. Tapping on that icon will download the entire webpage content, including text and photos. Once downloaded, you will be able to see them under the ‘Downloads’ option.

In case of videos, you have the play / pause and seek bar at the bottom of the video player. Just besides that, you will also see a download icon if the video is downloadable. What’s more, you can even share the videos over Bluetooth, email and instant messaging apps such as WhatsApp.

Google has also made some improvements to the downloads. In case the network is unstable and the download is interrupted, it will resume automatically once it gets latched on to stable network. Another nifty addition in Chrome browser is the personalized content. Now, when you open a new tab, you will get smart suggestions based on the content that you were recently searching for, a feature similar to discover content on Google Now.
