  • Voice Options: Choose from various voices and languages, including English, French, German, Arabic, Hindi, and Spanish.
  • Customization: Tailor your listening experience by selecting voices like Ruby: Mid-pitch, Calm for a pleasant reading experience.

How to Access

To use this feature:

  1. Navigate to a text-heavy webpage using your Android Chrome browser.
  2. Tap the three dots menu located at the top right corner.
  3. Look for and select “Listen to this page,” situated just below the Translate option.

Enhancing Accessibility

“Listen to this page” enhances accessibility, making content easier for auditory learners and those with visual impairments. It marks another step forward in Google’s commitment to inclusivity and user-centric innovation.


Google Chrome’s “Listen to this page” reads text aloud and offers controls. It empowers users to customize playback and multitask with ease, enriching browsing experiences. Expect updates as Google refines and expands this feature, making it even better.
