Now, Google Assistant May Read Web Pages in 42 New Languages

The screen will also highlight the text that Assistant is currently reading so users can follow along on the page as it is being read out loud

Search engine giant Google has started rolling out its article-reading feature ‘Read Out Loud’, which works with 42 languages, to all the Android smartphone users across the globe.

“With Google Assistant, your browser can now read web articles out loud. Whenever a web article is displayed on your browser in your Android phone, you can say, “Hey Google, read it” or “Hey Google, read this page” it will immediately read aloud the content of the web page,” the company said in a statement on Wednesday.

To use the feature, one can simply say: “Hey Google, read it” or “Hey Google, read this page” for the Assistant to read the text on the screen.

The screen will also highlight the text that Assistant is currently reading so users can follow along on the page as it is being read out loud.

One can also alter the reading speed and choose from multiple voices.

“You can use the translation menu to select the desired language, and all pages will be automatically translated and read out in that language,” the company added.
