Send To Kindle on Android Phone(web, mobi)?

Is there any way to do it in the same way as, say, from PC? On PC there's a Send To Kindle plugin for Chrome and Send To Kindle app which is added to right-click mouse button menu. So having a web-page opened in browser I just have to hit the plugin button on the toolbar, and that's it. Having a mobi file, I can just right click on it and choose "Send To Kindle".

Suppose I want to do the same from Android phone. All I have there is Kindle App. When I'm trying to share a web page from Chrome, Send To Kindle does't appear in the list of apps for sharing. Same with mobi file, if I just go to any file explorer -- or I need some mobi reader with "Share" menu, and I don't know whether there is any app with such options etc...

Could anybody advise please?
TIA

You can use Yandex browser + SendToKindle Chrome extension (supported by YB).

Ironically, it was a feature of Kindle for Android at one point (installing Kindle app added a Sharing option for Send To Kindle). Then it went away. I have not checked lately, maybe it is back. (This feature does exist for iOS).

There are also at least a couple of Android apps that will add this, e.g.:

Thanks, I've installed Yandex to my phone, do see "Extensions" section in Settings, but there's just two subitems –– "Extension catalog", containing three extensions which I can enable(LastPass, Pocket and Evernote) and "For extension developers". Obviously I have to add STK extension myself, but I don't see adding extension option nor in YB neither in Chrome(of course, I'm talking about mobiles), and cannot find it in GooglePlay. Where do I get it and how do I add it to the browser ? TIA

It works. Fantastic, so with mobile YB it works exactly like in desktop Chrome, while mobile Chrome is unable even to add it, saying "added to desktop" lol. Many thanks Master!

I highly recommend that app. Very accurate, never had a problem, have been using it for at least two years. It's invoked via the Share option.

Gents, just in case somebody knows some similar magic for mobi files -- please share too TIA
(Yes, I'm aware about sending by email, so it's just in case there's something more nice and easy)
