Google has just ripped the beta label off Rivet, its free mobile app designed to help young children learn to read.

Designed by the company’s Area 120 incubator for employees’ big ideas, Rivet comes with more than 2,000 books for children, categorized by topic and reading level. It also listens to kids read, and assists with pronunciation when necessary.

When Rivet’s Android app hears your child read aloud, it encourages them with subtle visual cues; if they mispronounce a word, a button pops up, prompting them to hear the word pronounced correctly and to try again. When they’re ready, they can proceed to read the rest of the page.

The only caveat is this feature is currently only available on a limited selection of books on the Android app; support is coming soon to iOS, and the company will likely add more audio-enabled books in the future.

With its beautiful design and progress gamification, Rivet has the potential to help your children develop a strong reading habit. However, I found the range of books with audio support rather lacking, and I didn’t care for the ones based on YouTube videos. Hopefully, readers will have more to choose from over time.

Rivet is currently available in English, in 11 countries on Android and iOS, and it’s completely free to use.

Google will answer all your questions about the Stadia cloud gaming service ‘this summer’.
E3 2019 is a little more than two weeks away, and it’s starting to look like some gaming announcements from Google might also be set to drop around that time. Since unveiling its new Stadia game streaming service in March, the company has been pretty quiet when it comes to the key details that potential subscribers want to know. Things like when it will be live, how much the service will cost and what titles will be lined up and ready to go for the launch. But that doesn’t look like it will be the case much longer.
