The app makes longer texts easier to read or even read aloud for us.
Since its debut in 2007, Android still has a lot to improve, but we can't say that the company behind the software isn't doing more and more with time to provide a better user experience. Even if in small steps, each new release works to ensure that as many people as possible are comfortably using the system.
It was released by Google at the end of 2020 Reading mode An application that converts the content of web pages into plain text to make it easier to consume. The app can even be used for reading.
The program, which facilitates reading the contents of various applications, suffered from a serious flaw: it did not succeed in converting the contents of social media platforms and Gmail into text. This debt has now been settled by Google.
The application already works without problems when we want to try it in Gmail, X, and Threads. The change probably happened not so long ago, because in the new modes of use, the application sends a warning that everything may not work correctly. Once the childish feature is over, Reader Mode can be very useful for reading longer messages and articles.
After installing Reader Mode, you can launch the app by pressing and holding the volume buttons on the phone or by swiping up from the bottom of the screen with two fingers. Alternate operating modes also include a floating button and quick settings panel. Still can't use the app with PDF files or in Google Messages.
