In Chrome (on Windows), how can I add a webpage to my iCloud Reading List to read later on my iPad?

My iOS devices (iPad, iPhone) are already set to synchronize their bookmarks via iCloud.

It's clunky, but the best solution I've found so far:

Drag the URLs into Safari and add it to the reading list in Safari (which will synchronize with iCloud).

To synchronize your Safari bookmarks (including the Reading List) with iCloud:

  1. Download and install Safari and the iCloud Control Panel for Windows (if you haven't already).
  2. Use the iCloud Control Panel to choose to synchronize your iCloud bookmarks with Safari.

Automate the process with AutoHotkey, and you've got yourself a great solution. :) – iglvzx Dec 26 '11 at 23:57
Not a solution anymore as Safari is no longer supported on Windows. – Shawn Strickland May 9 at 12:56

Highlight the url in chrome.
right-click > services > add to reading list

This only works in OS X, right? The question is about Chrome in Windows. – Jon-Eric Jan 3 '12 at 15:36
My experience is that this doesn't even work as one would expect in OSX either. It just opens up Safari and stops there. – Robin van Baalen Jan 28 '15 at 14:09

Here ya go... Apple's Official Chrome extension (only works on Windows, as it's redundant on a Mac):

Additionally, there's some nice scripting goodies here for Chrome on OSX users:

This doesn't sync the reading list, only other bookmarks (from what I can tell). – MarkovCh1 Oct 12 '14 at 20:48
How can this be the accepted answer? It doesn't add anything to the reading list. – Jim Aho Feb 16 at 13:44

This doesn't directly answer your question, but I use a work around for the same situation.

Read it later allows you to mark URL's to read later, storing them on their own cloud. The plus to this is that you can use an extension for Chrome, FF, Opera, Safari, iPhone, iPad... and access them anywhere. Very handy!
