At the second ‘Google For India’ event in New Delhi, held on the day of its 18 anniversary, the company announced its Public Wi-Fi platform called Google Station, named to highlight its origins at Indian railway stations. It also announced that Google Assistant will be available in Hindi by the end of the year through the new smart messaging app Allo.
Google’s new chat app Allo was launched on September 21 and has already been downloaded more than five million times on the Play Store. Allo is an instant messaging app that was announced by Google along with video chat app (Duo) earlier this year at Google I/O. Allo has jumped to the number one spot on the Play Store (in the free apps listing).
