March 29, 2017: Aimed at helping Bengali speakers discover new information quickly, Google today announced the introduction of Knowledge Graph in Bengali language on Google Search. In addition, Google Search will now also support spell correction for Bengali queries improving the Search experience for the Bengali speakers around the world.

The Knowledge Graph enables users to search for things, people or places that Google knows about — landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art and more. The feature allows users to get straight to the answer instead of scrolling through webpages.
