Android’s 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. On the surface, the changes appear to be completely random, but that’s because each one is aimed at a specific type of user.

For example, Google adds a new one reading mode app (opens in new tab) to help the visually impaired read text on their phones. It works by integrating with your phone’s quick settings and can be activated by selecting a new book tab that shows up in other apps. The page then turns into a more readable form 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, its font size and contrast. Reading mode also has a text-to-speech option for users who struggle the most or just want to relax and listen. An in-app slider lets you adjust the reading speed.
