Google will allow linking to underlined text excerpts on websites – Marketeer

Sometimes, internet users do not want to share an entire page, rather they want to share a specific section and on those occasions Google developed a new feature for Chrome. The tech company announced on its blog that it will be possible to create links to a distinct part of the website, that is, a specific paragraph of text.

According to Kayce Hawkins, Google’s Product Manager, the new feature is still in the release stage, which means that not all users will be able to access it at the same time. The official adds that it’s an update compared to the Link to Text Fragment extension launched last year, which is now part of the browser itself.

The mechanisms are simple: visit a website, underline the portion of text you want to link to, right-click and select the option “Copy link to highlight”. A URL is automatically generated that can be shared with others, who will be directed directly to the featured portion rather than rewarding them with the beginning of the page.

For now, the functionality is already available for some desktop and Android Chrome 90 version users. Soon, it will also start releasing for iOS devices
