Google is aiming for its products to be accessible to anyone, even those with disabilities. The company posted a blog post about its current improvements in accessibility, including putting display accessibility settings in the first boot set up screen of Android devices running Android N.

Another huge improvement its Google’s new release of Voice Access Beta. The app lets you control your device using your voice, saying things like “scroll down” and “open Chrome.” This is to aid those who have physical disabilities that impair using an Android device with touch. It can also be a useful tool for some individuals for hands free use.

If you want to give the app a shot, head over here to sign up for the beta program. How many of you, disabilities or not, would benefit from Android coming with voice control? Leave a comment!
