Jaipur: At Jaipur Literature Festival, Indian language received an encouragement when Google decided to host a “Love your language’’. The motive of the forum is to provide better representations to the Indian languages on the internet.

Google presented a statement in which the company said that they are aiming to provide better representation on the internet for some language. As it currently can translate 9 out 22 official Indian languages, it added that some of those 9 are less used on the internet.

Google has asked anyone who is passionate about the language to contribute to Google translate so that the company can boost the translation of Indian languages and increase the use on the internet.

Through the forum, Google will also try to inform people about the Google Translate.

Jaipur Literature Festival which started on Thursday and will continue till 25th is arguably the biggest literature festival of the country. It is important for the Indian language that there is a discussion about it.

English has always overshadowed the Indian language and it is now time that they get better representation. If this pattern has to be changed then there is a need from the government to encourage the vernacular languages and such festivals can be a big help in this.

A large number of youths go to JLF every year. It is one of those events that are extremely popular with youths and it was good to see that there was a push for Indian languages there.

Google is now rolling out audio streaming and download quality controls for YouTube Music on the Android operating system (OS), the media reported.

The latest controls come with newer options in the “Settings” and “Downloads’ menu — low, normal, high and always high — that would allow users to choose the quality of audio and video content on the platform, keeping in mind their requirements and data constraints.

“Beyond an audiophile’s desire for the highest quality sound, adding this setting helps users better manage their data plans when streaming, as well as device storage when queuing songs for offline playback,” 9To5Google reported on Saturday.

The search engine officially announced audio streaming and download quality controls along with the promise to adopt a more consistent update cycle for YouTube Music earlier in August and confirmed these features last month.
