What to expect from Google for India 2020?

India has continued to be one of the top markets for Google. Over the years, Google for India events have been the launchpad for the company's new localised services and features.

Last year, Google introduced Hindi support for Google Assistant, a new Bengaluru-based AI research centre and support for new Indian languages on Google Discover. Other key announcements included more language support for Bolo. Google Pay also received a bunch of new features.

We're expecting similar announcements at the Google for India 2020 event. There is likely to be a big focus on empowering the digital economy and Indian SMEs which have also been part of the government's efforts to revive the economy.

“Over the last six years, we have consistently invested in building helpful products and services that extend the full potential of the internet, and make it truly helpful for everyone in India. Especially in these exceptional times, we are deeply committed to building on this momentum, and unlocking new opportunities as India heads into a new, digital-first future,” said Google in its invite for the event.

“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,” it added.
