Chrome browser allows you to preview links before opening them on Android phones


Google is constantly adding new features to the Chrome browser. The latest Chrome feature for Android now allows you to preview links without clicking on them. This allows you to quickly see what's behind the links. On the pages and sites you visit

Up until now you had to click on a link and let it open in a new tab to view the content behind that link. This will change with the latest update of the Chrome browser. As was first spotted by 9to5Google, Chrome version 89 for Android now lets you preview a web page behind a link without having to open that link. This allows you to quickly see behind this link without having to open a new tab for it.

Although this is not a major feature, it may be useful for those users who often click on different links on different websites. You will no longer have to open a new tab for each link as you will be able to read the entire webpage behind the link from the current tab.

Link preview in Chrome You can access the link preview feature from the Chrome browser context menu. Here's how to do it:

Open a webpage with a link in Chrome on your Android phone

Instead of clicking on the link, click and hold on the link.

From the context menu that appears choose Page Preview.

A portion of the lower portion that covers about 75 percent of your screen will open. This section displays the webpage behind the link that you clicked.

You can close this pane by clicking the X in the top right of the pane.

If you want to open the link for this webpage then click on the link icon near the X.

Note: Do not try to resize the pane as it will close the link preview.

If you don't see the option to preview links

In the event that Chrome does not offer the page preview option on your device, you may be using an older version of the browser. You can fix this simply by updating your browser to the latest version.

To do this:

Open Google Store on your phone.

Find Chrome and tap on it.

Click Update to refresh the browser.

You must be version 89 or later to use the preview option.

If you are interested in knowing what is behind the link but do not want to open the link, you can use the newly introduced preview option to view full web pages without opening a separate tab for them. This feature works for any link you come across in this browser.
