Google is extending its neighbourhood community app Neighbourly across India, nearly six months after its global beta debut in Mumbai.
The Android app, which is part of the American technology company’s ‘Next Billion Users’ initiative, will be launched in Delhi and Bengaluru on Wednesday, followed in other Indian cities such as Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, and Kolkata in the next few weeks. So far, the app has been available in seven cities including Mysore, Vizag and Jaipur.
“Delhi and Bengaluru were two cities where we saw the highest wait list numbers. It was also where we did a lot of early research about Neighbourly, due to which we got a lot of feedback about the local information needs that people have in these cities" said Ben Fohner, senior product manager, Next Billion Users at Google.
