When Android first came out, I have always boasted about the auto text sizing feature on the Android browser. For those who are not familiar with the auto text sizing feature, it is the feature where when you view the web page, the browser will resize the text to fit the screen depending on the font size you select.In other iconic devices, you have to pinch and zoom but then you have to drag the screen right then left to read the texts on the web page.
Somehow since Lollipop I did not see this feature on the browser. Recently, when started using the HTC One A9, I found that I tend to use the phone to access more web pages and less use of my tablet; I started to poke around and found the feature is still there but embedded in the browser setting (at least for the Chrome browser).I have always loved this feature hence think it is worth writing it up here for those of you who may not know how to set it up.
So you are using Chrome and you find that the current font setting is small for you:
Drag the screen down and tap on the “3 dot” on the top Right Hand Corner for Chrome Settings:
Then select Accessibility:
Here you will find a slider and you can adjust the text size to your liking:
Press the back key until you get back to your web page. You will see the page will be displayed in the large font that you just selected:
This should automatically resize most web pages for you. In the future, in case you view some web pages and the text displayed is small, if you just double tab on the screen, the text will be auto resized to the text size you selected above.
Hope you find this useful and get to read more web pages using your HTC One A9 or any Android phones.
Bye for now.
