How can I get extensions on Chrome on my Android?
The thing is if we add any extension then it can increase browsing feature and add many features. But at the same time it needs more memory (RAM) to run and work. Now in PCs we do various s of work and require many different s of features. So it would be a loss for any browser if there isn't any extension available. But on the other hand Android phones don't have enough RAM generally. Main reason for that is background work of almost every app- Facebook messenger Instagram WhatsApp you just name it. And the other reason is Android OS is not efficient at handling memory at all (otherwise they wouldn't have needed more memory than PCs ever). Last reason is that chrome browser itself is a memory eater. So if we add extension in the browser then it would require more memory to run and damage the whole experience laggy. Which doesn't happen much in PCs as PC OSs are more efficient. And Even though Google provides many shitty services (Android is one of them). But they care about user experience to keep them around. So there's no extension available in chrome browser. P.S If your using iphone then it would be more memory efficient than Android. But all other point would be nonetheless same.
Why doesn't the Pocket extension for Chrome have the Listen(Text-To-Speech) option as the Pocket Android app?
I have wondered this as well and unfortunately the answer below seems to be related to a different question (it addresses iOS not the chrome extension). My guess is that there are a couple reasons Firstputers have pretty decent TTS engines nowadays so theyre not leaving userspletely high and dry here. It not as convenient as having a button on the page but you can invoke a TTS feature from the OS to do this for you. Second Pocket is now owned by Mozilla which offers this feature via the reading mode option. It's possible that they want to incentivize people to migrate from chrome to Firefox. Lastly I believe that the to speech feature they currently use is powered by an Amazon cloud service. It's possible that this could mean that opening it up to all users of their desktop extensions would create substantial costs. They may have decided to offer it only on mobile for now since desktop users already have other TTS options.

How do I install a Chrome extension on my Android phone? I can't find any options.
It seems Quora has be a place for bloody spammers everyone posting s and clickbait videos almost irrelevant to subject But the problem is these kind of questions get tagged as irrelevant in StackExchange.. I am trying to say the options you have for this.. You can't directly install any add-on on chrome. However Firefox for android has some extensions for android version.. Probably some lesser known browserse with basic add-ons like ad-block. Eg Yandex Browser. But if you want to use chrome with extensions for some definite purpose you can search an app that does same task or switch to Firefox if that add-on is available there for android. Now let mee to the techie option here Install some PC Emulator Either Limbo or Bochs from Play Store. Emulate a lightweight OS with ISO images that you can download from internet. Better go for some lightweight Linux distributions such as Lubuntu or reactOS with which you can install chrome Firefox. Emulate the OS in emulator then get respective package for browser. Now you can browse as inputer with addons.. But the drawback is it is too slower because it is running in emulator. There is still another techie option. Install GnuRoot Debian and XServer XSDL from Play Store. Then you can get instructions to install packages on that from XDA Forums. They say Firefox runs smoothly with addons. Both the above options include lot of technical steps which you can obtain by searching the Google on how to install Linux PC Software on android using these tools

How can I use Chrome/Firefox extensions in an Android phone?
I can speak for FireFox but Chrome does not have any extensions on Mobile Phones.. Judging by your question I think you haven seen an option in FireFox to add and extension. That strange because the browser that I use Spin Safe browser is bases on Firefox and supports extensions. I think so do other browsers like Dolphin and Samsung Internet.
