Search Google In Marathi, Bangla, Tamil, Telugu; Dark Mode For Search Results Being Tested
Search engine giant, Google has newly introduced two new features so that it would cater to a wider range of users. One of these features is that Google will now be available in multiple languages so that Indian users can use it in whichever language they are comfortable with.
The other feature that Google is working on is the dark mode.
Read on to find out all the details about these new features introduced by Google!
Google To Now Support Five Regional Languages
To make the search engine available in new languages, Google is planning to introduce a new AI model — MuRIL (Multilingual Representations for Indian Languages). Other than Hindi and English, Google will now be available in four new Indian languages, such as Tamil, Telugu, Bangla, and Marathi.
As per reports, the tabs for these new languages have been added after four years after the addition of the tab for the Hindi language. The queries for the addition of Hindi language had increased by 10 times, which is why the tab was added in the first place.
Sanjay Gupta, Country Head & Vice President, Google India, said, “We hope that today’s announcements provide a flavor of the depth of work underway — and which is required — to really make a universally potent and accessible Internet a reality.”
The feature will also enable users to show search results on Google in Indian languages, and set the preferred language without the need to change the phone settings.
Google Starts A/B Testing Dark Mode or Search Results
The other feature that might soon be introduced on the website is the dark mode. Reports have said that Google is now A/B testing a dark mode for Search on desktop web.
In May, Chrome had added a flag to “Show darkened search pages on Android.” Here, the result was a near-identical experience to using the Google search feature.
Reports suggest once the dark mode is activated, the white background will switch to a dark gray hue that will match first party mobile apps.
This is still a developing story and we’ll keep you informed as we get any more updates!
