How to Save Web Pages as PDF in Chrome on iPhone and Android

Converting web pages to PDF on Chrome has its uses. It may be an interesting article that you want to save permanently offline. Or maybe you want to share a page with other people after a few annotations and others. Whatever the reason, you do not limit yourself to saving Web pages in PDF format on desktops. You can also do it on mobile devices.

If you use Chrome on your iPhone or Android smartphone, it is more than possible to save a Web page as PDF. But instead of sharing links to third-party applications or services and thus converting web pages to PDFs, what I'm going to show you requires only the use of native features on both platforms.

Converting Web Pages to PDF – Chrome for iOS

On the iPhone and the iPad, Chrome may seem too simplistic. But in fact, it is full of features that make it a pleasure to surf with. And it also offers the ability to seamlessly convert Web pages to PDF by "printing" the document.

However, you may have noticed that Chrome for iOS does not have "Save as PDF" or "Print as PDF" options visible anywhere on its Print Options screen. Nor does it have Safari-style "copy to books" option.

Instead, Chrome requires that you do something with two fingers to do the job. Let's see where and how to do that.

Step 1: Open a web page that you want to convert. When loading is complete, tap the Share icon in the upper right corner of the Chrome address bar.

2nd step: Scroll down the share sheet, and then tap Print. On the Printer Options screen that appears later, zoom in (or pinch) on a thumbnail preview. This action will instantly convert the web page to a PDF file.

Point: Before performing the zoom-in gesture, you can also use the Page Range option of the Printer Options screen to prevent unwanted pages from being included in the PDF file.

Step 3: Tap the Share icon in the upper right corner of the PDF preview screen. On the shared share sheet, share the file in another application or save it locally.

I prefer to save converted PDF files locally with the help of the Save to Files option. This allows me to perform a host of actions with the help of the Files application, such as renaming the file, moving it to another location, sharing it with several other applications, and so on. .

Converting Web Pages to PDF – Chrome for Android

If you use Chrome on your Android smartphone, saving Web pages to PDF is even more convenient than on an iPhone. Indeed, the browser has immediate access to a dedicated "Save As PDF" option. This option appears when you use the Print feature of your Android device.

Step 1: Open a web page, and open the Chrome menu (tap the three-dot icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.) Find and tap the Share option.

Chrome then converts and saves the Web page to PDF in the Downloads folder of your device, after which you can open it or share it with other applications. You can access it by using the file manager on your device.

Important: Sometimes the Print option in the Share menu may not be displayed. If this is the case, restarting the device will help restore this option. Otherwise, resetting the Chrome flags will also do the trick, but you will lose any changes that have been made to them. To do this, type chrome: // flags in the Chrome address, then press Enter. On the screen that appears, tap Reset all by default.

PDF – Always the King of Formats

In terms of convenience and compatibility, nothing like PDF that works on virtually any device without problems. And with the methods listed above, you can convert virtually any Web page you encounter to PDF on the two main mobile platforms. I have no idea why Chrome on the iPhone should include, for example, an obscure gesture for saving Web pages in PDF format, but at least it is extremely easy to execute. On Android, things are pretty simple, as it should be.

So, have you managed to convert web pages to PDF? If you have problems, share your concerns in the comments below.

Then: Do you use Google Docs? Then, here's how to save all PDF documents on the desktop and on the mobile.
