Google Launches Public Wi-Fi Scheme In India

Google has launched a new service across India that it says aims to ‚Äúdeepen its reach across the country‚ÄĚ. With India being one of the fastest growing online communities on Earth, Google is looking to reach more people across the country with the service Google Station. Under the new plans, the company will roll out new Wi-Fi hotpots in highly populated, public areas. Caesar Sengupta from Google said that it hoped to ‚Äúgive people many hot spots within a few minutes' walk from their home‚ÄĚ. Meanwhile, the search engine is looking to further engage India's population by making Hindi the first non-English language introduced to its new Google Assistant AI tool. Sengupta said that the country was suited to Google Assistant due to its high implementation of 3G, whilst the video app Google Duo had seen "amazing uptake" in the country.¬†
