The Android Accessibility app, Sound Amplifier will help users hear more clearly, including those with hearing loss. Google has also indicated that it will be making continuous improvements to the platform.
The app functions with headphones where users can customize frequencies in order to enhance a specific sound, like a person's voice. The app is able to decrease the background noise, this will allow users to focus their attention on the more important sounds. A visual feature was also included so users know when the Android Accessibility app is finding or enhancing a certain sound. Users are also able to turn up the degree to which the sound is enhanced.
Users will also have the ability to start the app directly from the home screen, this will allow users to quickly enhance sound around them if needed.
