Well, thank you for your answer Cameron, what should we do to get a disable feature added ASAP? Not just for the news articles but also for all the "you just did this or that"! Hope ? Pray? This situation is so ridiculous, looks like some Google bureaucrat has decided to make users happy...

Well what other Internet can we use instead... its..disgusting..  mines displaying my downloads..  all of that content should be private at all times..  also I'm now seeing news items from my own town..  I just don't wanna know whose been raped and beaten up etc etc..  I don't buy the newspaper  and reality celebs on there..  I don't want to see their lives or be made aware that they exist..

Your new "Suggested articles" feature on Chrome for Android home page: even if I delete all items in History it will still show my downloaded files to anyone! Impossible to delete. Very shocking: you betray your users! And I want to turn this feature off, stop spamming me with unwanted content! I don't want you to spam me with disgusting Trump news!

Hi all,

Good news everyone!

Chrome 66 for Android has just been released. If everything goes well, you should be getting the update in the coming weeks.

Since Chrome 66 on Android, you can disable "Articles for you" by clicking the “Articles for you” dropdown in Chrome New Tab page and toggling the option off. See my pinned answer on top.

Thank you for those who have sent feedback in past Chrome releases.

Cheers,
Rong Jie
