Here's How You Can Hide Chrome Suggested Articles on iPhone and Android

If you also prefer to have a clean tab, jump right in as we will show you how you can disable article suggestions in Chrome with ease.

Chrome is one of the popular web browsers across all platforms. However, a Chrome feature called “suggested articles “ reportedly makes users sometimes feel uncomfortable. Whenever users open a new tab, there are plenty of suggested articles that appear, which seems to jumble the whole interface. If you prefer to use Chrome with a clean tab, this article will help you hide the Chrome article's recommendation.

While Chrome proposes a simple way to disable articles suggested on iOS as well as iPadOS devices, there is no direct way to turn off this feature on Android-running devices.
