Sharing information, however you choose to do so, is becoming an important part of navigating the Internet. Whether you are retweeting something you found on Twitter or liking something on Facebook, the social signals we create make it very simple to let other know about things that we like or have found interesting. But sometimes you want to share a Web page or article with a specific person or small group of people, and you want to do it through email. While you have always had the option of copying and pasting the link on your iPhone, there is a much easier way to email a link to a page that you are viewing in the Google Chrome iPhone 5 browser app.
Sharing a Link in Chrome Through Email
When you choose to email a link from the Chrome app, you are going to use the default email account that is set on your iPhone 5. If the current default is not the account that you want to use, you can follow the instructions in this article to learn how to change the default email account on your iPhone 5. Conversely, you can also change the From address on an email on a per-email basis by tapping the From field when the new message window opens, then choosing the desired account.
Note that this tutorial assumes that you have already configured an email account on your iPhone. If you have not, then you can tap the Mail icon and proceed with the on-screen steps to set up an email account on your device.
Step 1: Open the Chrome app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Navigate to the Web page that you want to email to someone.
Step 3: Tap the Settings icon with the three horizontal lines, located just to the right of the address bar at the top of the screen.
Step 4: Tap the Share option on this menu.
Step 5: Touch the Mail option.
Step 6: Type the email address of the person to whom you want to send a link to the page. Note that the Subject field is populated with the title of the Web page, and the link to the page is inserted into the body of the email. If you want to type additional information into the email, you can tap in the body area of the email and type that information.
Step 7: Once the email has been completed, you can tap the Send button at the top-right corner of the screen. After you send the message, you will be returned to that page in the Chrome app.
