How to use magnification on Android
Magnification is a useful accessibility feature that can be incredibly helpful for individuals with difficulty seeing small text or images on their Android devices. This feature allows you to zoom in on the screen, making everything more prominent and easier to see.
Here’s how to enable it:
- Open Settings and go to Accessibility as described above.
- Tap on Magnification or Magnification gestures.
- Toggle the switch to turn on the magnification feature.
The magnification shortcut should appear on your screen. You can use it to magnify the screen.
If you happen to open or close an app while the magnification feature is turned on, your screen will automatically zoom out to full view. However, you can easily re-activate magnification using your selected shortcut.
