Google Chrome on Android is getting a Read Later feature Google has been working on a Read Later feature for Android for some time, and the feature has now shown up, without a flag, on Chrome Canary for Android.

The feature competes with a similar feature from Pocket, though of course less sophisticated, as it does not appear to sync across devices at present.
