Just Google it!
Isn’t that line so familiar? And it never gets old.
Over the years, we’ve all shown a lot of love for this friendly search engine. And during Sundar Pichai‘s recent visit (PS: He’s the CEO of Google), we realized just how much Google loves us too! Over his two days in Delhi, we learned all about their plans for the next billion (Google users), and guess what? India is a HUGE part of it. Yay!
Here’s a wrap up of the 6 things they’ve planned for us next year… So much love!
1. India In A Day
Yup, Google is making a movie about India… under the direction of Sir Ridley Scott! Remember when they asked everyone to share videos of what they were doing on October 10th? This is why! It’s literally “India In A Day” and the movie release is planned for March/April 2016. We caught an exclusive preview during the live session with Sundar, and LOVED it! Can not wait to see the rest.
2. Free Wifi At Mumbai Central
And that’s just the beginning. By the end of 2016, free Railwire Wifi will be provided and operational in over 100 railway stations in India, connecting more than 10 million people who pass through everyday.
3. YouTube Space
With only 8 of these in the world (in places like Tokyo, London, New York etc), we’ve now got our own YouTube Space in Mumbai. It’s got everything you need to create your own videos and build your channel, with access to the best creators across the world! Find out more about this here.
4. Start Up With Google!
Recently, Google announced plans to give 1,000 of today’s best & brightest Indian startups $20,000 in credits to run their business on Google Cloud. More details about this exciting opportunity here!
5. Internet Bikes
There’s going to be thousands more! This program was launched by Google with Tata Trusts, to connect women in rural India through a fleet of internet bikes. #InternetSaathi
6. Chromebit Coming Soon!
This lovely little device is being launched in India in January 2016, priced at Rs 7,999 only! The gift that keeps on giving.
It’s going to certainly be an exciting, Google-filled year ahead!
