If you've ever wanted to save an article from the internet to read later on your Android tablet, you've had to use apps such as Pocket or Instapaper that only retain the actual text of the article. Thankfully, Google is baking complete-page downloading into Chrome 55 for Android, which is supposed to roll out this week.
This feature goes beyond just saving articles, though, according to its release notes, Chrome 55 downloads music and videos as well. The update will also watch out for typos, highlighting misspelled words you write in text fields.
To see if your Android tablet can access the browser update, open the Google Play store, tap the top left Menu button and tap My apps & games. Select Chrome from the (possibly lengthy) list of apps, and then tap Read More under the What's New box. At the bottom left corner, you'll find the version number available to your device.
If you see version 55, tap the Previous navigation button and then tap Upgrade at the top right corner. Right now, we can't get the upgrade to show up on a Google Pixel C or a Asus ZenPad 3S 10, so don't get too annoyed if it's not on your machine either.
