Google Maps Now Supports 39 More Languages

Google added support for 39 more languages to Maps Including Persian, Romania, Serbia, and others. With the new update, Google Maps will be able to serve the users in more languages. However, it was quite unexpected to know that Google Maps wasn't supporting these languages until now.

Now, Google Maps will be supporting Afrikaans, Albanian, Amharic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Bosnian, Burmese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, Georgian, Hebrew, Icelandic, Indonesian, Kazakh, Khmer, Kyrgyz, Lao, Latvian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Mongolian, Norwegian, Persian, Romanian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Swahili, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Uzbek, Vietnamese, and Zulu.

According to Google, almost 1.25 billion people fall under these languages which makes this update necessary since a long time. Moreover, with the additional language support, Google Maps will get an exposure to countries where these recently added languages are spoken by the users. Currently, Google Maps holds more than 1 billion daily active users across the globe.

Google Maps

Google Maps was launched by the search giant back in 2014 with the support of English language only initially. Originally the map service was created by a company named “Where 2 Technologies” which was acquired by Google in 2004. Over the period of time, the company kept evolving the service by adding new features like detailed information, navigation, live location and recently added wheelchair-accessible navigation option. These additions to Google Maps are making it much more convenient for the users to find their way during a journey.
