Google on Thursday introduced a new feature for its Android devices that would let users in India and several other countries surf the web without a constant Internet connection.

“When you’re connected to free, unmetered WiFi, Chrome will automatically download relevant articles, based on what content is most popular in your location,” said Amanda Boss, Product Manager, Offline Chrome for Android.

The automatically downloaded content would be available alongside all of the downloaded content available for access anytime, even without an Internet connection.

Chrome on Android would be available in over a 100 countries including India, Nigeria, Indonesia and Brazil.

Micro-blogging site Twitter is ending support for all iPhone and iPad users who are running iOS 9 or older versions of the operating system.

According to a message in the app’s update text in its latest App Store released this week, only those users running iOS 10 or higher will continue to have a supported mobile client. The company’s message notes that this decision will allow it to streamline its app development for all clients, TechCrunch reported late on Thursday.

Twitter has until now supported devices like the iPhone 4, 5, 6 and their variants.

The company is now officially dropping them from their supported device line-up, meaning the device users will no longer receive feature updates or bug fixes for the Twitter app.
