The biggest announcement of these was that thanks to AI-based tech, Google Go users will now be able to "listen to webpages".

Shashidhar Thakur, VP, Engineering, Google Search, says, "For Search to be truly helpful, it should bring you useful content, in all the languages you understand". While this does bring it under Google's recently consolidated payment services, Google Pay in India will continue to use the UPI protocol instead of the NFC-based system used in other countries.

Google Assistant will now serve you more relevant content to Indian users and now supports Marathi language. Paytm's founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma and its parent One97 Communications run a payments bank and the payments firm also plans to expand to selling financial products such as insurance and mutual funds in India - the world's fastest growing internet services market. The digital assistant will add as many as eight new Indian languages. Google has announced that Google Feed will become a bilingual feed with English and Hindi languages support and it will arrive on Google Go as well, in the coming months.

Google mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core is Samsung's first Android Go phone.

At its annual Google for India conference, Google announced that more ultra-budget smartphones featuring Android Go will make way to India, paving the way for a solid growth of the segment.

Google Pay will be the first major payments app in India to offer bank loans, although a host of digital lending startups have come up over the past few years. Navlekha has already started onboarding publishers from Delhi, and Google aims to add more from other regions in September.

Google launched the Tez app in India previous year and since then over 55 million people have downloaded the app and more than 22 million people and businesses actively use the app for digital transactions every month. A year later, the company now chose to rebrand Google Tez as Google Pay.

Google Maps: Will get voice guidance in both English and Hindi. Our partnership with RailTel is an example where millions of people are accessing Internet from hundreds of railway stations in India.

Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA), the company led by renowned investor Warren Buffett, is set to invest up to $360 million in the Indian payments platform, a source told CNNMoney earlier this week. Google Station is partnering Andhra Pradesh State FiberNet Limited to cover over 12,000 villages, towns and cities in the state of Andhra Pradesh, potentially reaching 10 million people.

Recently, the company also added bill payments within the app.
