General News Google Play Store gets ‘Wait for Wi-Fi’ feature in India
#1
Advertisement
Google has turned 18 today, and at its ongoing “Google for India” event in New Delhi, the company has made a number of announcements to make internet easily accessible in India. Internet penetration in India is still the most in cities, with billions in villages still unconnected. Users are now shifting to smartphones, telecom operators are rolling out their 4G services, but in most circles, users are latched on to 2G connections. To allow users discover more apps and download the on their smartphones, Google is testing a Google Play Store app that will work on slower 2G networks.

The app is exclusively designed for India and the automatic rollout will start later today. The new Play Store app will cache popular pages and allow users to download apps later when on Wi-Fi network via a Wait for Wi-Fi feature. Google is also working on offline search. So, when you are offline and make a search query, Google will send you a notification whether you would want to perform the search query when you’re connected to the internet. This feature will soon be made available to users in India.
To make Google services available for non-English speaking users, the company has also announced voice search support in Hindi. It also demonstrated the working of voice search at the event. To make the internet work for everyone with the Indic keyboard Google has also introduced tabbed search experience. It also mentioned that Hindi content consumption grew five times at the rate at which English content is consumed.

Also, the Google Assistant – an upgraded version Google Now, which we have already seen in the company’s Allo messenger will soon be made available in Hindi. This will allow users to ask for queries in Hindi language and it will revert in the same language. That’s not all; Google has also announced the expansion of free Wi-Fi beyond railway stations. It’s a global initiative called Google Station and the company is also working on making it easier for partners to setup, maintain and monetize their Wi-Fi networks.
