Google is introducing a new feature for the Android version of its Chrome browser called “Listen to this page,” which allows users to have webpages read aloud to them directly within the app.

This feature includes convenient podcast-like playback controls, enabling users to pause, adjust reading speed, scrub forward, or skip ahead or back by 10 seconds.

Users can customize the voice and language used for reading, with several languages supported, including English, French, German, Arabic, Hindi, and Spanish.

While Google Assistant can also read webpages out loud and translate them into other languages, it directs users out of Chrome and into the Google app. The new feature, however, keeps users within the Chrome browser.

Currently, this option is visible in the beta version of Chrome, with 9to5Google noting its availability in version 125 of the Android Chrome app. Safari on iPhone offers a similar feature, “Listen to Page,” which uses Siri's voice and provides comparable controls.
