Make in India gives Google some global solutions

Bangalore, October 9 2016: Unlike last week's global announcements, Google's recent India initiatives  are pitched at the aam janatha,  aiming to touch those with poor Internet  access:

YouTube Go, is a  new  for-India-only mobile app to load and play YouTube videos smoothly  even with  cheaper phones and poor Net access. It  also offers  a new feature that lets users share videos easily with friends and family nearby, without using any data. 
After working with Indian Railways to provide Wi-Fi at 400 railway stations, Google has now launched  Google Station  which helps service providers rollout fast, reliable and safe Wi-Fi zones..
The recently launched messaging app Allo  includes a preview edition of the chat-based  Google Assistant. Later in the year,  will be available  in Hindi.  You you can respond quickly in English and Hinglish.
The Google Chrome browser now offers an expanded Data Saver mode, to reduce the amount of data the browser uses on Android devices, to 67% and to  optimize pages  and download  twice as fast  slower  2G-like networks are detected
The Android app Google News and Weather  has added  a new feature called “Lite mode” for people on low-bandwidth connections that keeps the headlines and trims the rest of the components down to  essentials

Some made-for-India technologies are working elsewhere too: For India Google  to  created Maps Offline — a way to download a map to your phone so you can navigate around town even without a data connection. But now people around the world, especially in the U.S. and Europe, are using offline maps.
