Now it’s easier to switch between English and Hindi with the launch of a new tab on Google Search for mobile. Available in States with significant Hindi-speaking populations, this new feature gives you a way to flip between English and Hindi when using the Google Search app and Google Search on most browsers on your Android or iOS mobile phone.

It is a pretty neat idea for a country that speaks two languages very well.

They added:

This new tab search feature has just started rolling out for Mobile users (on all browsers except UCBrowser and Opera Mini) in Bihar, Chattisgarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Delhi and West Bengal and will improve over time. We hope that you enjoy using this feature and it helps you find the best the results.
