Google Chrome on Android: New zoom feature

Having trouble seeing web pages on your Android phone? Check out the new and improved Chrome Zoom feature!

Having trouble seeing the smaller screen on Android devices? This new zoom feature increases the size of text, images, videos and interactive controls on mobile web pages up to 300 percent!

This new feature is not yet available for all Chrome users; however, anyone can download the Chrome beta on their phone or tablet.

To change the zoom setting

To enable the feature, tap the three dots icon in the top right corner of the browser. Select Settings > Accessibility. Use the slider to adjust the zoom to your preferred level.

Your Zoom preference will be saved and will even bypass the websites that block zoom features.

Previously, Google only allowed users to adjust text scaling to 200 percent.
