How to Remove Suggested “Articles for You” From Android Chrome

This list of articles is automatically curated by Google based on your interests or more precisely your search history and activity. Google Chrome doesn’t give you any option under the Settings to disable or remove these suggestions.

Google Chrome gives you an option to hide these articles however they still remain hidden on your home screen under a collapsible menu. There are users who love this feature but some people consider it as an distraction or an intrusive feature.
