New ‘Page Zoom’ Accessibility Feature Coming To Chrome For Android

The new feature is reported to share similarities with the same zoom feature users present in the Google Chrome for Desktop.


The popular web browser Google Chrome which was developed by Google is getting a new feature. The web browser released in 2008 is getting a new Page Zoom accessibility feature. According to MSPoweruser, the new Page Zoom accessibility feature for Google Chrome has been added to the ‘Canary’ channel to provide symmetry in terms of text scaling of various websites. With regards to multiple long online threads and Chrome support forums, this subject had gotten over time, the addition of the new feature surely signifies that Google pays attention and care for its users.

The new feature is reported to share similarities with the same zoom feature users present in the Google Chrome for Desktop. The Page Zoom accessibility feature is also expected to bring seamless text scaling to webpages on user mobile devices. Once the Page Zoom accessibility feature is set up, the zoom appearance for that webpage is improved and there wouldn’t be a need to set up again for that same page as the Chrome browser automatically saves this setting for you. 

However, to access the new Page Zoom accessibility feature by Google, a user would need to do that manually. According to MSPoweruser, a user needs to tap on the down-arrow button on the address bar, just before the website link. Pressing the down-arrow button would show you different options such as Cookies, Zoom, and Last visited information. Here, you need to tap on the Zoom option. Then you will see a Zoom level control, where you can select the zoom level apt for you. If you think you would live to go back to the default zoom settings, then you can hit the Reset button. The page zoom control bar shows up at the top of the browser interface. Chances are the position on the browser interface may change anytime. As of the time of this publication, it appears at the top of the browser interface.

Although for now, this feature is still only available on the Google Chrome Canary Android app, we assume the Google Chrome for Android will receive an update on release as soon as possible. More so users using the Google Chrome Canary app can launch this feature by enabling a flag. To do this, it is expected you type “chrome://flags” in the address bar and hit the search button. A new Chrome Flag menu pops up, search for “Accessibility Page Zoom,” when it appears, select the Enabled option after which you restart the Chrome browser.
