Google updates Maps for Android with Hindi voice-navigation


Google Maps updateLike all Wednesdays, Google has released a couple of app updates today including a small one for Google Maps. This Maps update includes support for turn-by-turn voice navigation in Hindi as well as improved navigation notifications on Android Wear devices.

Talking about Hindi voice navigation support, Android users will now be able to use Hindi as the language of voice-prompts in turn-by-turn navigation. As there is now way to specify the voice-navigation language in the Maps app, you will need to change the language at OS level to avail the feature. To change the language on your Android device, go to Settings >Language and Input (the options can be little different depending on device manufacturer).

This is the latest step in Google’s attempt to make its services available for the Hindi users. Earlier, the company had launched Maps app in Hindi and released support Hindi in Voice Search.

The updated version of Maps will automatically reach your Android device over the coming days.

Among other Google app updates, the company has rolled out an updated version of News and Weather app with bug-fixes.
