It’s fairly common to browse the Internet and find a Web page or a product that you think someone else might like to see.
You may have previously tried to describe the way that you found that page to someone, but a far simpler way is to share the link directly with them in a text message on your iPhone.
Our guide below will show you how to do this from the Chrome app on your iPhone using a sharing feature that is built right into the app.
