Indian languages got a massive push from Google with the search giant offering a new product that will help vernacular newspaper and magazine digitalise and go online really fast and with minimum resources. The Navalekha Project was announced as part of the Google For India event where the Mountain View tech major for which India is its second largest market announced new features and services for this market. The other major announcement was the rebranding of Google’s Tez payment app as Google Pay with deeper integration with online and offline retailers as well as access for instant loans via the Bhim UPI.
