Save web page as PDF in Chrome browser for Android

Do you want to download a web page on to your smartphone? Sometimes we may need to save a web page to our mobile phone so we can view it offline anytime on the go. For example, you may want to get some work done during your commute time or when you are on vacation. Saving a local copy of a web page also allows you to edit, annotate and share it. You can save web pages as PDF right on your Android Phone, without using any online conversion tools, PDF converter or browser extensions. Google Chrome is the default web browser app on any Android device. And this stock web browser lets us easily save any webpage as PDF file on Android mobile.

Open the webpage you like to save in Chrome browser on your phone. Wait until it is loaded completely. Tap the Menu at the top right to expand the menu on the right side and choose Share from the menu.
