How to Copy Link to Selected Text on Android (Chrome)

In this article, we will learn how to share links to a specific word or sentence using Chrome for Android.

Google recently introduced a new feature called Text Fragments. Don’t worry about the fancy name. Here is how it works.

We normally share links to a page. If we have to share or highlight a word or a phrase on that page, we use screenshots.

What if you could send a link directly to a word or a sentence? This will work similar to sharing link to a specific point (timestamp) on a YouTube video.

On the desktop version of Chrome, a simple right-click does the job. Here is how tod o it on your Android phone.

  1. Select the word or phrase that you want to highlight.
  2. Tap Share.
    Select Text to To Share Link
  3. Tap the blue link (chain) icon.
    Copy Link to Text on Android
  4. The link is copied to your clipboard. You can now paste and share it.
