Google Reader’s spiritual successor arrives in latest Chrome update for Android – review geek

In May, Google’s Paul Bakaus announced a new Chrome feature called Web Feed. It is a spiritual successor to Google Reader, allowing you to follow site RSS feeds and manage the content that arrives on your Chrome home page. Now, Web Feed is finally available in a stable version of Chrome for Android, although you will need to enable the feature manually.

As reported by Android Police, anyone with the latest version of Chrome for Android (version 92) can activate the web feed through the indicators menu. the to treat is quite simple – just copy and paste chrome: // flags / # web-feed in your address bar, select Web feeds and choose the “Activate” option. Chrome will then restart to activate the web feed feature.

Congratulations, you can now follow RSS feeds from your favorite sites. Visit a news site or blog and tap the menu icon (three dots) in the top right corner of your Chrome app. Then press the “Follow” button at the bottom of the drop-down menu.

Tracked websites will appear in the “Tracking” tab of your Chrome home page, right next to the “For You” tab. If you hate the algorithm, then you’ll love to host a web feed! The whole experience is a bit nostalgic.

There are just a few things to keep in mind here. Like most of the features behind Chrome flags, Web Feed is a bit crass and may not perform perfectly. Also, the “Next” feed doesn’t have a manual refresh button yet, so you won’t get instant updates from your favorite sites. Future versions of Chrome will likely fix these issues, and Web Feed will (hopefully maybe) end up leaving flags and becoming a standard feature for all users.

Now Google just has to add Web Feed to the desktop browser! If you’re having trouble enabling web feed, go to the Play Store and update to Chrome version 92. You can also download Chrome version 92 from Mirror APK.
