Google announced that the “Reading Mode” feature is coming to ChromeOS and Chrome browser on desktops, according to 9to5Google.

The new tool is rolling out to the Chrome browser on Mac, Windows, and Linux and will be available with ChromeOS version 114 later this year.

On the desktop, the feature can be found within the side panel’s dropdown menu which also consists of the Reading List and Bookmarks.

The mode offers the option to increase and decrease the width, font size, and font and change the background color to light, dark, yellow, and blue along with adjusting margins

Last month, Google Chrome expanded its zoom tool’s capacity, as users can increase the size of text, images, videos, and interactive controls on mobile web pages by up to 300% while preserving their original formatting.

The new feature is not available for all Chrome users, but you can access it now if you download the Chrome beta on your phone or tablet.

In order to activate the feature, tap the three dots icon in the top right corner of the browser, hit Settings > Accessibility, and then adjust the zoom level to your liking.
