Typically, when your internet goes down, it’s maddening. But thanks to Chrome’s Dinosaur game, things become easy. The game automatically appears on Chrome pages when there’s no internet. It would be the only thing for which you would want your internet to stop working. However, you don’t need to do so. You can play the game on the internet and that too on mobile as well. Let’s check 5 ways to play the Google Chrome Dinosaur game on Android and iPhone with and without an internet connection.
Play Google Dinosaur Game on Android and iPhone
1. Play Dino Game Using Regular Method
In case you didn’t know, the Dino run game works in the same way on your phone as on your PC. That is, when you have no internet on your phone, open any page in Chrome, and you will be greeted by the Dino game. Tap on the screen to jump over the obstacles.
2. Using Chrome Link
If you want to play the Dino game without turning off your internet connection or enabling airplane mode on your phone, simply open the chrome://dino link in the Chrome browser. Voila! You will be able to play the game while being connected to the internet.
Since Google Chrome comes pre-installed on all Android phones, you simply need to enter the above link. But you will need to download Chrome on your iPhone and iPad.
If you like to play the game regularly on your phone, entering the link repeatedly can be daunting. To avoid that, you can bookmark the link as shown next.
Create Google Dino Game Bookmark on Android
To bookmark the Google Dinosaur game on Android, launch Chrome and open chrome://dino. Tap on the three-dot icon at the top and press the star icon. That will bookmark the current page. To access the bookmarks, tap on the same three-dot icon and hit the Bookmarks option. Go to Mobile bookmarks. You will find the Chrome Dino game over there.
Create Google Dino Game Bookmark on iPhone and iPad
Chrome doesn’t let you directly create a bookmark for the Dino game on iPhone and iPad. You will notice that the Bookmark option appears greyed out. However, a workaround exists. Simply create a bookmark for any other link. For instance, bookmark TechWiser.com on Chrome from your phone. If you don’t know how to bookmark a website on your iPhone, tap on the three-dot icon in Chrome. A menu will appear. Scroll down in the menu and tap on Bookmark.
Now you need to edit the bookmark. To edit and access your bookmarks, tap on the same three-dot icon and hit the Bookmarks option. Please note that in the first case, you need to tap on Bookmark, and in the second case on Bookmarks.
You will find all your bookmarks. Touch and hold the one that you want to edit and select Edit from the menu.
In the URL box, remove the link and add Chrome://dino. Similarly, rename the link and hit the Done button. Congratulations! You have successfully created a Chrome bookmark for the game.
Alternatively, if you are signed in to Chrome using your Google account, you can create a bookmark on PC too. You can then access the same bookmark from Chrome on your mobile.
3. Using iPhone Widget
Google Chrome on iPhone offers an easy way to access the Dino game using widgets on iOS 14 and above. Touch and hold an empty space on your iPhone’s home screen. When the icons start to jiggle, tap on the add (+) icon at the top. Scroll down and tap on Chrome.
Swipe left on the Chrome widgets and you will see the Dino game. Tap on Add widget to add it to your iPhone’s home screen. Tapping the widget will open the game in Chrome. You cannot play the game directly from the widget.
