Google said on Tuesday that its Read-Along app, which was first launched in India as Bolo in 2018, has been found to improve reading abilities of children in the country.

In an assessment conducted by an independent partner comprising over 3,500 students in three languages and across five states in India, 40 percent more students who used Read-Along saw an improvement of one or more reading levels as compared to students not using the app.
