Hitting the majority Hindi-speaking population in India, tech giant Google has unveiled a new tab on their Google search for cell phones that displays the results both in English and Hindi at the same time.
Shekhar Sharad, Product Manager, International Search in an official blog post on Wednesday said that users in India would now be allowed to find the information online the similar way they live; switching between multiple languages depends on the audience.
Now, the user can type a query in English and then move to the new tab to see the answer in the Hindi language. Sharad added that suppose if any user wants to know about the favourite movies or celebrities, he/she can type his/her query in English and then switch the tab to see the answer in Hindi.
Users can now also search health-related information and read the results in Hindi. The Google Search app is available on most of the browsers, including Android and iOS mobile phone and will update and fix bugs time-to-time. But it does not show up on UC Browser and Opera Mini according to the blog post.
The support can be used in north Indian states like Bihar, Haryana, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, and Uttarakhand including West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh.
