Google’s Navlekha To Help Indians Publish Content in Regional Language

Opening the event, Rajan Anandan, VP, India & Southeast Asia, focused on the role of technology in creating more locally relevant experiences in India.

According to Google, 90% of the 150,000 government-registered magazines and newspapers in India, or 135,000, don't have a website. At the annual event, Google revealed some key stats about the Indian internet ecosystem, including the fact that a whopping 90% of India's internet audience is mobile-first. Many of India's new internet users favor listening and speaking over reading the text. And they're no longer predominantly men: in the next three years, we expect 45 percent of Internet users in India to be women. Furthermore, online video now accounts for 75% of all mobile traffic. "There will be over 500 million Indian language users over the next two years", he said. With the rebranded Google Play app, the company is aiming to streamline it globally.

Google Go users in emerging markets now have a new option to help make web pages easier to understand.
