Google is going to start its annual event in India tomorrow i.e. on November 18. Google for India is known for bringing India-centric features to its product portfolio. The seventh edition of the Google for India event will be live streamed. Over the years, Google introduced local language support for Lens, Translate, its payment platform Tez, which was later re-branded as Google Pay.
Some changes were also made in Google Assistant to understand the local language for Indian users. Apart from this, the tech giant will not launch its Pixel smartphone here. Google India said, ‘Look how far we have come together and this time, we are back with more product updates, more technology innovation and an increased commitment to India’s digital journey’.
Google has partnered with Jio to bring the JioPhone Next smartphone and helped design a new OS called Pragati. Google wants to enter rural areas of India by tying up with Mukesh Ambani’s Jio.
This event was started in 2015…
The Google for India event was started in 2015 and since then it has continued its efforts to connect with the masses. In its journey, Google revamped its most used platform, Google Maps, to add more personalized and accurate information.
The US-based firm has been a frequent partner of the government in India. Google is now offering free Wi-Fi at over 400 Indian railway stations with over 7.5 million monthly users.
Google said, “In India we want to make the Internet alive for all, the more people have access to tools, services, information and online training, the more they can pursue their ambitions and reach their potential.” Huh.’
“We want to help Indians connect to the Internet, which meets their needs and helps them make a positive impact on their community,” the company said. Our target is to achieve this with programs and products with Indian users. Google for India is expected to bring more features and localization related to India from 2021.
