Google just launched the new ‘Read Along’ Android App for the little ones to learn to read during this quarantine, which helps teach reading skills to elementary school students, is now available in early access in around 180 countries.

‘Read Along’ by Google

Read Along by Google's main objective is to help school children to read and speak a certain language, through sound and visual activities. With the help of several children's stories, the virtual assistant Diya is able to identify difficulties that may exist in the pronunciation of some words or phrases.

This application has been around for some time, having been originally launched in India with the aim of helping children to be able to speak English and Hindi. Taking into account the great challenge that the majority of the world population is going through, 'Google decided to launch the application globally'.

Google in a released statement;
“She gives them positive and reinforcing feedback along the way, just as a parent or teacher would. Children can also tap Diya at any time for help pronouncing a word or a sentence”.
Obviously, for that, they needed to add support for other languages. For now, the application supports English, Hindi, Bangla, Urdu, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Spanish and Portuguese.
