Google has launched a new tab on Google Search for mobiles that allows users to switch between English and Hindi. This is available in states with significant Hindi-speaking populations as users can benefit from this by using the Google Search app and Google Search on most browsers on their Android or iOS mobile phone.
Announcing the new feature in an official blogpost, Shekhar Sharad, product manager, International Search said, Users in India would now be able to search for information online the same way they live: moving between multiple languages depending on the moment or the audience. For example, users may search for “samachar” in English, but would rather find results better for a Hindi query “समाचार”.
This new feature works across queries such as – your favorite movies or celebrities to your favourite sport. Now you can type your query in English and then flip the tabs to read the answers in Hindi”. Users can even look up health related information and view the results in Hindi, he added.
This new tab search feature has just started rolling out for Mobile users (on all browsers except UC Browser and Opera Mini) in Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Delhi and West Bengal and will improve over time. We hope that you enjoy using this feature and it helps you find the best the results.
