18 May No internet connection? View web pages when you’re offline.
Ever known you were going to be somewhere that doesn’t have a good WiFi connection, but you still wanted to bring your RCA tablet along to keep you entertained? Increasingly, more apps such as YouTube and Netflix are letting you download content for offline viewing. Now, Google Chrome will let you do that with web pages. Accessing this feature is really easy and super handy.
To download a web page you’ll first need to open your Chrome app on your RCA tablet. Pull up the web page you’d like to view later for offline viewing and click the down arrow in the upper right corner by the favorites star. Once the download is complete you’ll see a notification confirming the download. You can either open it then or access it later. To access your downloaded content later, simply tap on the three dots in the upper right corner and view ‘More Downloads’. You should see content you’ve downloaded from Chrome that is accessible for viewing offline.
Alternatively, you may also long press any link (tap and hold your finger over a link) to download for viewing later. To access the downloaded web page, simply follow the steps mentioned earlier by accessing ‘More Downloads’.
Downloaded web pages open up in tabs just the same as online content. You’ll notice in the URL bar it will say ‘Offline’. When you’re finished viewing the web page you can delete it by accessing your downloaded files and selecting which pages you’d like to delete.
Ever run into Chrome’s offline dinosaur? You’ll notice towards the bottom of the page there’s a “Download Page Later” button. If you tap it, Chrome will automatically download the page for you when you get back online.
Whether offline or online, you’ll always have something to view on your RCA tablet.
