In celebration of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, Google on Thursday announced a suite of new accessibility features across its various products, including Maps, Lookout, and Android, aiming to improve usability for individuals with disabilities.

One of the standout updates is to the Google Lookout app, which is designed to assist blind and visually impaired users in navigating their surroundings. The app now includes a powerful new functionality that allows users to search for specific objects such as bathrooms, seating areas, and more. In addition to identifying these objects, Lookout will inform users about the distance to and directions for reaching them, significantly enhancing the app’s utility.

These enhancements are part of Google’s broader effort to make technology more inclusive. With these updates, Google continues to build on its commitment to accessibility, ensuring that its products can better serve all users, including those with disabilities.
