Google has just released a save-and-read -later extension for its popular web browser, Chrome, called ‘Save to Google’.
The internet in 2016 offers a crazy amount of information on every possible topic, including articles, videos, images and what not. Every user who surfs te web for at least two hours a day comes across the aforementioned multiple times during that time, with some of the content matching the user’s interests.
However, whether it is because of a hectic schedule or because you just don’t feel leaving your News Feed to read an article or watch a video, the last resort is adding the particular link to your never-ending “read later” list, by using platforms such as the likes of Pocket and Evernote.
In the same spirit, Google has launched its own counterpart, dubbed as ‘Save to Google‘, an extension that allows users to store images in one specific location and filter them by tags, videos, articles and every other format they wish to save. Read-later apps, including the aforementioned, will definitely receive some heat from Save to Google, since a significant proportion of people use Chrome as their primary browser.
The extension is available for free on the Chrome store. Its official description reads:
Easily save interesting webpages to Google with the new Save to Google extension.
One-click save: Click the star to save webpages for later viewing. Easily navigate your saves via an intuitive visual UI.
One spot for webpages and Images: Your saved webpages and saved images from Google Image Search will live together at google.com/save.
After downloading Save to Google, you can access it via the respective extension bar, located on the top right hand corner — click on the yellow star icon, hit the add button, include a tag and from there on the particular content will be available at google.com/save.
