Google launches AndroidGo for 512 MB phones, Assistant for Jiophone

Google Maps Gets Motorcycle Mode in India Showing Navigation Routes for Two Wheelers

The company revealed that this special version of Google Assistant built for JioPhone will offer support for both Hindi and English languages. These Go apps were launched alongside Android Oreo Go, an optimized version of Android Oreo for entry-level smartphones.

Google will also roll out latest version of its payments app Tez in coming months.

At the event, Sengupta said Google had some big plans for the Tez app for 2018 and that some big features for merchants were in the pipeline.

Currently, there are almost 400 million Internet users in India along with over 300 million smartphone users. "At the current growth rate and given the connectivity environment, we expect this number to reach 11GB per user per month in the next four years and Google is here to help connect all", Rajan Anandan, Vice President, South East Asia and India at Google, told reporters at the company's third annual "Google for India" event here.

The feature will be rolled out gradually over the next few weeks to users, who will receive a notification when the feature becomes available to them. Second, it is light on storage and data, and great on patchy connections, said Google in its blog. The experience would be customised for the JioPhone's smaller 2.4-inch screen, so would the functionality, but all in all Google is looking to offer the same level of usability on the JioPhone as it does on a high-end smartphone.

The company also brought bill payment facilities on its digital payment app "Tez".

In addition to UPI, the new Tez will come with support for Bharat Bill Payment, which allows you to view, subscribe to and pay bills from electricity companies, phone companies, schools and lakhs of other firms in India.

"These products and features are India-first, but they are not India-only".

Google Maps will support two-wheel vehicle navigation, offering directions to better suit scooters and motorcycles.

With this in mind, Google Maps has introduced a new feature to help two-wheeler riders in India. India is one of the first countries to get "two-wheeler mode" in Google Maps.
