Type in hindi , on android devices ......


    Typing in Hindi just got easier on android devices , with Google releasing it's Hindi transliteration keyboard "Google Hindi Input " , It allows you to type messages, update on social networks or compose emails in Hindi on your Android phone !

Will it work on your phone ?

     If you can read नमस्ते correctly on your phone, then you can use Google Hindi Input, otherwise your phone may not support Hindi.

Hindi transliteration

- Toggle the button “a->अ” on English keyboard to turn on/off transliteration mode. 
- In the transliteration mode, you can type Hindi word in English characters and the app will convert them to Hindi. 
- For example, type “hindi” and then you will get the word हिंदी from a list. 


- By turning off the transliteration mode on English keyboard, you can type in English.
Hindi keyboard 
- Toggle the globe button to switch between English and Hindi keyboard 
- Consonants are alphabetically ordered into 2 pages. Press the paging button “1/2” “2/2” to navigate between pages. Long press the character key to select various forms in the popup.
