Google Launches Hindi Input App

Google's (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) Internationalization Team has launched an Android app that makes it easier to communicate in Devanagari script on mobile devices. 

Available through Google Play, the Hindi Input app enables users to communicate in two ways. In transliteration mode, users can type any Hindi word in English, and the app will automatically convert the word to Devanagari script. However, if users hit the globe button, the keyboard changes to a full Devanagari script keyboard; the keyboard organizes the Hindi consonants alphabetically across two pages. 

Google said it began working on this app after recognizing the difficulty mobile users typing in Hindi had with the traditional QWERTY keyboard. Google has also released other Hindi language and Indic input tools available on Chrome extensions, Windows applications, and Google Cloud products.
