Android December update lets you share your digital car keys with iPhones

Android devices are getting new features as part of a December update courtesy of Google. At first glance, the changes seem completely random, but that’s because they all target a specific type of user.

For example, Google adds a new one Reading mode app (opens in new tab) to help blind and partially sighted people read text on their phones. It works by integrating itself into your phone’s quick settings and can be activated by selecting a new book tab that appears in other apps. The page then changes to a more readable form, complete with colored text on a black background for high contrast. Customization options are available, according to the announcement (opens in new tab), where you can change the color of the text, font size and contrast level. Reading mode also has a text-to-speech option for users who struggle the most or just want to relax and listen. A slider in the app allows you to adjust the reading speed.
