After Google, Microsoft may take a call on Windows 10 updates to Huawei laptops, the media reported on Monday.

According to Techradar, the tech giant has declined to comment on whether they would continue in this role, saying “we have nothing to share.”

Google has already announced to block Android updates for Huawei and chip makers Qualcomm and Intel have said they can no longer provide chips to the Chinese giant.

In a bid to further allow users personalise their Windows 10 experience, software giant Microsoft on Monday launched smart phonetic keyboards for 10 Indian languages as part of its May 2019 update.

The updated phonetic keyboards have been made available in languages including Hindi, Bangla, Tamil and Marathi amongst others, the company said in a statement.

The keyboards would allow users to work in their preferred languages without having to purchase customised Indic hardware keyboards or stickers.

The technology would let users input transliterated text using the existing keyboards and then convert text from one script to another, depending on the target language.

The new tools would not only help in making computing inclusive, but they are also expected to improve typing speed and accuracy in Indian languages by at least 20 per cent along with making it easier to make regional symbols like the Indian numerals easier to input, the company said.
