Scrolling :How To Activate Auto Scrolling On Android 7.0 And Above


Going through long text documents, web pages, and e-books can be tedious and boring and that’s thanks to the continuous scrolling. It will be great if there was a solution to automatically scrolling right? Well, there is. Thanks to a new set of Accessibility features that were introduced in Android Nougat (7.0), the “Easy Scroll” app automatically scrolls through your screen at regular intervals to make your reading or browsing on a smartphone fun.

Using Easy Scroll is like the name suggests, it’s  quite easy.All you need to do to set it up is simply to grant it the accessibility permission as well as the permission to draw over other apps. And that’s it, so easy. The app will now display a widget on your mobile phone screen that allows you to scroll automatically. You can set the scrolling speed, ranging from 1/10 screen per sec to 1/6 screen per sec. Also, there’s an option to let the app show on any content that has scrollable content, or you can alternatively select the apps yourself.

But there’s a little catch. Easy Scroll,  uses Nougat’s accessibility settings, so it will work only on devices running Android Nougat (7.0) and above. Although it’s still in the beta state, the app works very well on most devices.It might have its downside but its still worth a try if you’re on Android Nougat, and are tired of scrolling continuously, make sure to try out Easy Scroll.
