Reading mode for the entire system and the ability to

Google has introduced several new features for the OS without updating the version of Android.

For example, now Android has a Reading mode. This is a fairly serious innovation, which even requires a separate application, which is already available on Google Play.

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.

Note that for several months Google ADT-3 was almost impossible to purchase.

The ADT-3 is the third in a series of developer devices that Google is offering to test apps with Android TV updates. The Google ADT-3 debuted in January 2020 for $79 and was sold through Askey. The predecessor, ADT-2, was released about two years earlier at Google I/O 2018.

While the Google ADT-3 is no longer available, Android TV 13 and Google TV 13 Developer Previews are still only available for this device. For now, the only way out for them is the Android TV OS emulator in Android Studio.
