When, how to watch the Google for India event

The Google for India 2020 event will begin at 2:00 PM IST today. The live stream of the event will be available through the company’s official YouTube channel. You can also follow the company’s official social media handles for the real-time updates.

What to expect from Google’s India event

As the name of the event implies, Google will make new announcements including updates on its existing services and products, and new initiatives custom-made for India. Last year, it announced a new Bengaluru-based AI research centre. Google Pay and several other Google services received many new features and updates for Indian users.

This year, we’re likely to see the continuation of the same. Google has confirmed Sundar Pichai will deliver a “special keynote” later today. We’re expecting Google to also focus on the digital economy and efforts to empower local SMEs.

“Join us as Sundar Pichai, CEO, Google and Alphabet, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Hon’ble Minister of Communications, Electronics & Information Technology and Law & Justice, Government of India, and many of our leaders share the vision and path ahead to solve for India’s needs, and bring the benefits of the digital economy to all,” said Google in its invitation for the event.
