“Expanding the support for local Indian languages on our ad platforms is aimed towards making India’s internet more useful for a billion Indians,” he said. “In the last few years, we have systematically addressed the barriers that prevent local language users in India to gain from the internet,” Anandan added. He further said it was hoped this launch will enable publishers to create more content in Telugu language and help advertisers connect with their users in local Indian languages.
