The new mode is designed to optimize the reading process, allowing you to adjust the contrast, speech synthesis, font size and type, as well as highlight the main thing on the page. In general, Google says that the mode is intended for users with visual impairments and dyslexia, but people without the mentioned problems will be able to use some of its functions.

The main highlight of the new mode is that it works at the system level, which means that all kinds of settings can be configured, regardless of the application used.

Google also made available a speed-controlled text-to-speech feature with a choice of “natural-sounding voices” to choose from, and support for English, French, Italian, and Spanish.

In addition, the digital car key function has been updated, which allows you to use your smartphone instead of a car key. Now users can share these same digital keys. It is possible to view activity and control access to the machine. Currently, this feature is only supported by Pixel 6 and iPhone smartphones, but the list will expand in the near future.

Tesla showed a more compact two door Cybertruck But for now

Tesla may be preparing a new version of its Cybertruck pickup that will be smaller than the current model.

The image shows a more compact two-door version. One would think that Tesla just drew such a car, and this does not mean anything, but this option seems a bit strange. Moreover, Elon Musk himself said back in 2019 that in the future, the release of a more compact pickup makes sense.

It is not yet clear whether the poster was an absentee announcement of such a version or if there were some other reasons for showing such an image, but Musk may well comment on the situation in the near future.
