    YouTube Go

    India is known for its slow internet speed and expensive data packs. Keeping this in mind, Google has announced a new app which goes by the moniker YouTube Go.

    Essentially, it is a video streaming app tailored for the Indian market, meaning it'll work even on slow internet connections.

    This app also allows you to download videos (save for offline view) in different quality formats to watch them offline at any point of time.

    Google Assistant will help you in Hindi soon

    Google Product Manager, Amit Fulay, announced at the event that "a preview of the Google Assistant will be launched in Hindi by the end of 2016."

    For the unknown, Google Assistant is a virtual assistant (similar to Apple's Siri) powered by AI. It is integrated into the company's recently launched Allo app to assist you in getting things done quickly.

    Faster browsing for 2G users

    Unlike urban parts of the country, many of the villages in India don't have access to high-speed internet connections. Keeping this in mind, the search engine giant will soon allow its users to download apps even on low bandwidth connections like 2G networks.

    Also, Google Play will offer a new option called Wait for Wi-Fi where the app will be installed only after the phone connects to Wi-Fi.

    Data Saver Feature for Google Chrome

    The already existing Chrome's data saver mode that reduces the amount of data it uses on Android smartphones, computers and Chromebook will now support MP4 videos as well. It is claimed to reduce up to 67% of video data. Additionally, it will optimise web pages when it detects 2G network to load pages up to 2 times faster.

    Google Station

    Earlier this year, Google partnered with RailTel and Indian Railways to offer free Wi-Fi at Railway stations in India.

    Taking this project further, Google announced Google Station, a public Wi-Fi platform, which offers Wi-Fi hotspots at a public place like malls, cafes, and bus stops to provide free internet by partnering with various organisations.
