[WCSA] Daily Highlights – February 03, 2020 - Google expands its Sound Amplifier accessibilities feature to Android Marshmallow and above


(Wcsa.world) Google’s Sound Amplifier, its accessibilities feature that helps enhance volume for those who have difficulty hearing, is now available for devices with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above. The feature was previously announced at Google I/O 2018, and launched first on Android 9 Pie last February.

Sound Amplifier allows you to adjust frequencies to customize sound from your headphones, allowing you to emphasize foreground sounds and minimize background noise. The feature now also shows a green visualization that displays real-time audio, so you can adjust how much sound you want to reduce or boost.

These customizations can be especially helpful when you enter different environments, such as a noisy concert, restaurant, movie theater, or during busy commutes. Sound Amplifier support is available for phones with Android 6 Marshmallow and later starting today.
