As the county gears up for the counting of votes on May 16, Google is adding a few new features to keep a track of the results. These new features include some new features like live results map, live Counting Day YouTube newscasts, and much more.

Google had launched its elections portal back in November last year, and has since then been adding new features. Last month it added a “Know your Candidate” Map, wherein you could enter your PIN Code to know about the local candidates. This Map will get additional features on counting day and you will be able to view the results for parties on the national level as well as your own constituency. Throughout the day, Google will also make it easy for users to access YouTube live streams from leading news channels.

Google is not the only one launching an election portal in India, and earlier this year, Facebook too had launched an Election Tracker app.
