Only half a month back at CES, Google gave a sneak look of a component that would let your Android gadgets read whole website pages so anyone might hear to you — ideal for when you don’t have a hand allowed to scroll yet at the same time need to make up for lost time with some content, or for when you simply don’t want to take a gander at your screen any longer. You’d state, “Hello Google, read this page,” and they’d turn up Google Assistant’s neural systems to produce a pretty darn spot-on reading of it.
Today that feature begins rolling out to all Android device users.
Some Interesting Bits
- It’ll highlight the content and auto look over the page as it reads, helping you to monitor where the reading has gotten in a story. Google had referenced this element as a chance previously, yet they weren’t sure it would be prepared for dispatch. It’s in!
- You can change the read speed if the defaults are excessively slow/fast for you. Ideal for those individuals who tune in to web recordings at 3x or whatever.
- It can interpret! On the off chance that the page you’re requesting that associate read is in a language that isn’t your default, it can naturally interpret over 40 languages into your language of choice.
- In case you’re a website admin and for reasons don’t want Google Assistant ever reading a page for all to hear (like on the off chance that it contains delicate data and you don’t need the component some way or another being activated incidentally), they’ve fabricated a “No page read so anyone might hear” HTML meta label that will disable it on a page-by-page basis.
Google says this feature should work on just about every modern Android-based smartphone going back to Android 5 (i.e. Android Lollipop).
