Turn Off Suggestions on Android Chrome New Tab Page

Back in Chrome 54, Google replaced Chrome for Android’s New Tab page with a new design that prominently featured suggested content. You are probably used to get the very same thing on Google Now’s feed and the truth is that the suggested content correctly identifies what topics you’re interested in and show you relevant content.

However, things don’t go at all great in case of being interested in just a particular niche and I am also sure of the fact that not all of you can turn into fans of Chrome’s cluttered New Tab page, especially overnight. Removing the suggested articles list is pretty simple as it involves a basic procedure. After that, you should simple re-open Chrome and the list will no longer appear on the New Tab page, that’s a promise.
