5 Best Text To Speech App For Pixel 3 XL

Text to speech apps are really handy to have around, particularly for studying. Some people just learn a whole lot better when they can type out text into a field, and then have it read aloud to them — it helps with retention big time. There are tons of text readers available on the Google Play Store, but a lot of them are bare bones with few features.

That said, if you follow along below, we’ll show you the best text to speech apps for Pixel 3 XL available right now. Here are our top picks.

Text to Speech

Text To Speech is first up on our list. This is essentially your bare bones way of having text read off to you. Open the app, and you’ll see a text field that you can use to write and paste content into. When you’re done, Text To Speech will read it off to you in a digital voice. You can actually save what Text To Speech says in its digital voice for later listening or sharing with friends as well — just save it as a .wav file. On top of that, the app supports over seventy different languages.

Voice Aloud Reader

Voice Aloud Reader is another excellent option on the market. It achieves the same goal as other text readers on the market, but we do like Voice Aloud Reader quite a bit because of its clean and intuitive user interface. On top of that, there are actually a lot of unique features in Voice Aloud Reader. Aside from the clean layout, you can use the built-in web browser to read off web pages, emails, articles, products, and more. Voice Aloud Reader actually supports the opening of local files, allowing Voice Aloud Reader to read off PDFs, documents, and more.

Tell Me – Text to Speech

Tell Me – Text To Speech is next up on our list. It’s perfect for Pixel 3 XL owners, at least those that are looking for a bare bones and no-frills text reader. Just open up Tell Me, and you’ll immediately see a text field. You can either type content into the text field, or you can paste content into it. Once you’re done, you can then have the app read the content in the text field off to you by pressing the Read button.

It’ll read the content off to you in a digital voice, but if you don’t like the default voice, Tell Me does have a variety of different custom voices that you can use. You can adjust the pitch, volume, and the speed that the voice reads the content to you at.

Google Text To Speech

Google’s own Text To Speech technology has been around for a very long time now. It’s pre-loaded on most Android devices, including the Google Pixel 3 XL. It’s essentially advanced text reading technology that can read you portions of texts in a lifelike voice. You probably don’t have to download it, but if for some reason it’s not on your phone, you can snag it from the link below for free.

It’s actually able to read entire books off to you. One example is Google Play Books — open a book that you want to read, press the button to start up Google Text To Speech, and it’ll go through and read the entire book to you, or at least until you stop it. It can be used to read other types of content, too.

Text to Voice

Text To Voice might come in as last up on our list, but it’s a really good way to write out text and have it read aloud to you in a digital voice. It’s a powerful app, allowing you to do things like open up local files off of your Pixel 3 XL, and then Text To Voice will be able to read off the contents of that file to you.

Text To Voice actually has a built-in web browser that you can use. You can navigate to different websites, and have the content of the sites read off to you. You can have the app read off articles to you, as well as any other portions of the site. If you want to save some text read off by the digital voice as an audio file for later listening, Text To Voice allows you to do that, too.

Any one of these text to speech apps will help you with having text read aloud. Some of these are bare bones options, and others have plenty of awesome features to compliment it. Some of these have some really awesome voice customization abilities as well. There isn’t necessarily one app that is better than the other on this list; however, we do really like clean UI of Voice Aloud Reader.
