San Francisco, Oct 28 (IANS) You will no longer have to manually enter country code top-level domain names to avail country-specific services for Google Search and Maps on the web and the Google iOS app.

And this applies even when you travel from one country to another, for example from the US to India.

Country services used to be distinguished by the country code top-level domain names (ccTLD) such as google.fr for France or google.com.uk for England.

“Google wants to stop the practice of manually entering the top-level domain to get a country’s services,” according to a report in 9to5google.

“Starting today, country services will no longer be determined by domain. By default, you’ll now automatically be served the appropriate country service without seeing a change in Google’s ccTLD,” the report said on Friday.

Google’s other services such as Gmail, and YouTube are already functioning this way.(IANS)

In a bid to let users connect with news in multiple languages, Google News will now provide access to news articles from multiple languages and countries from around the world, all within one app, the company has announced.

According to the search engine giant, with this update, users will be able to include content in two languages together within the news app and benefit from the headlines and stories in each language to learn more about a culture or to catch up on what’s going on elsewhere.

“Today, over 60 per cent of people around the world speak and consume news across two or more languages. Finding articles in these languages can be challenging, since it requires you to search for topics across various apps and websites,” the company wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.
