Create a Shortcut of a Website Using Chrome Beta on Adnroid.

Last Week Google Released Beta version of Chrome for Android, just casual bug fixes in this version along with some new issues were introduces to the users. But there is one thing that truly is great in Chrome beta, is the option of adding any website to the Home screen to used as a shortcut, well not only website you can also add a web app, if you want, to your device home screen.

Adding a shortcut in Android is not a big task, but before you can only add bookmarks to the Home screen, now Chrome Beta allows you to add any Site to the home screen to use as a shortcut, but the process is a bit different and way too easy for anyone, with just 2-3 taps you can add any site as a shortcut to your home screen.

Take techbeasts as an example, visit this site on Chrome beta, then tap the menu button, in the list you will see ‘Add to Home screen’ button. Then you will be promoted to select a name for it, then tap save. An icon will be then placed on your Homescreen, not every icon will be proper in Android to use as a shortcut, like Facebook will use it’s default icon not the Facebook icon.

Now when you launch the shortcut from Home screen, it will not take you to the address bar like it happened before, but it will take you to the part where you saved it. If you are not the one who usually take interest in Beta released but want to wait for the stable one, then i should suggest you to wait for the final release.
