Phones are getting smarter and smarter nowadays but English being the dominant language in the world is being used as the main language on most of the phones except on some Chinese Phones where everything is built in Chinese.
Although majority of the world is adopting for English , users from some countries easily find a customized versions of the operating system or the keyboard software designed for the particular language. But in a country like India with a huge diversity in language and culture, we can see lot of language. (29 Recognized languages)
Developers are creating third party apps for android phones for almost all languages but nothing seems user friendly and another disadvantage is that it requires more than one software to be installed for every language to use. Hence, Google has come up with a new Keyboard software for Android based phones which comes with 12 Indian languages, named as GOOGLE INDIC KEYBOARD.
The specialty of this keyboard is, you can enjoy all the 12 languages in a go with one app and it is very easy to switch between languages , especially from a local language to English. It comes with a pack of smileys as well.
Typing in a local language is very easy on this app, and doesn’t require more time as in the conventional keyboards. It is not necessarily to be input in the native language letters or the process doesn’t include translating it to the local language from English but to just type what ever it is to pronounce using English letters upon which it will be converted automatically by the keyboard in to the native language.
