Google Street View Won't Be Available In India

Let us see if Google has anything planned in a similar vein to tackle this rejection.

The new languages are less common in the world compare to other languages such as English, French and Spanish. These languages are spoken by around 1.25 billion people of the world. For Google Maps users in East Africa, there's an even better incentive: Kiswahili is now part of the fold. Whether Google will still push for permissions is also unclear. In a customer service context, if a customer calls in for more information on toasters, for example, the IVR system using text-to-speech will be able to respond back in natural language, Aharon said.

Google Street View, which has been trying to enter Indian market for a long time was denied permission by the Indian government for the second time.

Fortunately, the new Google Maps update is available for Android, iOS and Desktop users. With the latest version of Cloud Identity, Google added several new premium features, including enterprise-level security, application management, and device management.

As we all are aware about the current technology market, nearly everyone is using a smartphone studded with plenty of useful applications. But Google, which created Android, arguably deserves more criticism.

Google plans to work with public transport agencies worldwide to expand the service in coming months.

Cloud Identity - An upgrade to a service that Google launched past year, Cloud Identity allows admins to manage the access that various users and groups have to their organization's Google Cloud Platform services. To expand the data they hand, Akasaka collected data from the Local Guides platform from contributors in exchange for beta features and free storage on Google Drive. The giant has also added an alert feature for the commuters while arriving their stations.

It has also introduced Zippr like Plus Codes, which are six character Plus city codes for locations.

This decision of the government to not allow Google Street View access to the internal imagery of Indian streets makes more sense especially after taking a look at how it violates security often.

The service has 32 different voices in 12 languages and also allows application developers to customize voice pitch, speaking rate and volume gain. It has backed more than a dozen firms, including Aurima Inc., which is developing AI-powered sensors for autonomous vehicles.

The company today announced other companies can now try out Cloud Text-to-Speech in their own services.
