Google Hindi Input App Updated With Hinglish Support, Voice Input, and More

Google Hindi Input App Updated With Hinglish Support, Voice Input, and More
The search giant has updated its different language input apps for Android with the overhauled Material Design and all new features. Along with the Google Hindi Input app update, the company has also rolled out updated versions of the Google Japanese Input, Google Korean Input, Google Pinyin Input, and Google Zhuyin Input apps on Google Play.
The new Google Hindi Input app now includes two Material Design-based themes - Material Dark and Material Light - along with the old themes - Holo Dark and Holo light. It adds the support for Hinglish Dictionary, which suggests Hinglish (a mix of English and Hindi languages) words when the user types.

The search giant is also touting more accurate transliteration and Hindi candidate suggestions with the new keyboard app. Google says the Hindi Input keyboard apps now dynamically changes the consonant or vowel compound forms while the user is typing. Google explains, saying, "when [a] user types a consonant, the vowels on the top row changes into the consonant / vowel compound forms."

Voice input and Emoji input shortcut keys have also been added to the new Google Hindi Input app, apart from Hindi handwriting support. Google adds that the Google Hindi Input app now features a new Hindi keyboard for Android tablets.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, Google quietly rolled out Hindi voice search to the Google Maps app for iOS. The release notes for the latest update don't mention this new feature, but users can find it by tapping the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) on the top-left > Settings > Voice search. The language can be selected by scrolling down past the languages written in the Roman script. The options show Hindi (Bharat) in Devanagri script.
