Sound Amplifier is an Android Accessibility app that helps people hear more clearly, and now itâ€™s available on Android devices running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above. Using machine learning, we sorted through thousands of publicly available hearing studies and data to understand how people hear in different environments and created a few simple controls.
Hereâ€™s how it works: When you plug in your headphones and use Sound Amplifier, you can customize frequencies to augment important sound, like the voices of the people you are with, and filter out background noise. It can help you hear conversations in noisy restaurants more clearly, amplify the sound coming from TV at personalized frequency levels without bothering others, or boost the voices of presenters at a lecture.
The only thing though is it needs wired headphones so I could not test this out myself using my Bluetooth only phone. Maybe one of the first steps to make hearing aids a more commodity item!

Weâ€™re expanding the availability of Sound Amplifier to even more Android devices, making sound enhancement more accessible.
