Why to use chrome extensions in android?
Well some extensions enhance the browsing experience and give some secret data or perform various functions that your browser without them can’t do. Extensions are very helpful and allow to many things. There are extensions for taking a screenshot, see the seo score of any particular website, translation purpose, notepad extensions and various social media extensions. In Chrome for android there is no option for extensions management. Even one can’t download extensions from extension store.
In the faq section of the official website it has been clearly indicated:
