In an upcoming update, Google Chrome is picking up a favorite, in many browsers, update — a built-in Reader Mode. Here’s how the feature looks like and how to enable it in Canary.
Chrome has previously added a Reader Mode to its Android Version a few years ago, but the same feature didn’t make it for the desktop one. Unfortunately, as competing the desktop browsers as Microsoft Edge, Safari and Firefox can be, they all supported the feature.
Allows viewing of simplified web pages by selecting ‘Customize and control Chrome’>’Distill page’ – Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS
Once enabled, this feature gives Chrome users to pretty a button in the drop-down settings menu which is titled “Distill page.” This activates the Reader Mode in Google Chrome and gives the user a simplified look at the text from whatever webpage they’re on. Unlike the competition, though, it doesn’t seem like Google has any plans on adding extra options or features to this view.
This feature is live now in Chrome Canary v75. Head to chrome://flags/#enable-reader-mode, flip the toggle, and restart the browser to get this feature working for yourself
