If you're one of the 310 million people who count Hindi as your primary language, you'll be glad to know that Google Maps is now available in Hindi. Google India announced the rollout of the feature today, which is available for the web and on Android devices running Android 4.3 and above.
To set Hindi as the language on the web client, you can navigate to Google's Indian page and select Hindi from the list of languages, or change the language from your account settings. On Android, all you have to do is set Hindi as the language in the "Language and Input" section of your device's settings menu.
Google is currently offering transliteration into Hindi, which means that you will still be able to see location names in English along with Hindi. The search giant is also in the process of enabling Hindi as a language for voice-based navigation, although there isn't a clear date on when this feature might be available. Along with the voice search update from last month that optimized the voice recognition engine for Indian dialects, Google is steadily rolling out features to make its services more accessible to users in the subcontinent.
Hindi speakers, are you excited to have the ability to navigate Google Maps in your language?
