Bit by bit, Google continues to add useful features to the Chrome browser and Chrome OS. Recently, live captioning came to Chrome desktop, and we also saw the read later feature come to Android. One of the latest features might not seem so exciting, but I’ve found it to be such a productivity hack, especially when sharing relevant information with friends and family. What is this new feature? It’s the ability to share links to highlighted text in Google Chrome, and I’ll show you how simple and intuitive it is to use.
How to link highlighted text from Google Chrome
- From your Chrome browser, select a bit of text that you want to share a direct link to.
- Right-click on the text.
Select the Copy Link to Highlight option.

Share that link with somone, and/or paste it into another browser tab or window.
