Google India has patiently unveiled another ‘Made in India’ initiative where it wants Indian developers to build apps that are specifically optimized for the country. These apps will be put up on the Google Play Store.
A Google India Initiative
This marks the 7th time that Google India has taken up the initiative for progressing the falling standards of Indian IT infrastructure.
“At Google Play, we are committed to helping Indian developers of all sizes seize this opportunity and build successful, locally relevant businesses,” said Purnima Kochikar, Director, Business Development, Games and Applications at Google Play.
Not the First Time
Google had earlier also helped realize high speed internet at railway stations as well.
Speaking at Google India’s first-ever ‘App Excellence Summit‘ here, she said: “We support developers’ imaginations and make Android consumers aware of the new experiences our developers are creating”.
According to Google India, a majority of internet users in the country are going online primarily via smartphones.
There are now more people using Android devices in India than in the US. People in India also install more than a billion apps every month from Google Play.
“These numbers might seem staggering already but the number of apps installed in India has grown by 150 per cent each year,” Google said in a statement.
Google will soon also be launching its upcoming flagship, the Pixel 2.
