The newest version of the Google Chrome browser V86 which was released just this month has a new Read Later feature works like the olden Set Aside function in the Microsoft Edge browser or the Pocket integration seen on Firefox browser.
The name of the feature is pretty self-explanatory as Read Later allows you to save a tab which you can visit later on. By default, the feature is always turned off but in order to use it, you need to turn it on by first activating a Chrome flag by following this link chrome://flags/#read-later in your Chrome browser.
Then you need to enable the feature which will add up a new option once you right click on a tab in your Chrome browser.
Once selected, this option closes the tab and adds the tab link to a bookmarks folders called “Reading list.” Now, if you turn on the Chrome bookmarks bar at the top of the browser window, then the folder should be accessible via a button on the bookmarks bar’s right side called “Reading list”.

If you click on this then there should be a dropdown which will show all the tabs which were saved or set aside by you and there will also be the tabs that have already been red by you.
Features like Read Later are just one of the many Easter eggs Google has hidden inside Chrome. There is also the Reader Mode which is also hidden. It’s a reminiscent of those found on Firefox or Opera browsers.
