We re seeing people in different age groups in Mumbai and Jaipur use the app in interesting ways to find answers to everyday questions in their neighborhood, Josh Woodward, Group Product Manager on Google s Next Billion Users team, said.

With Neighbourly, we are able to address the local information needs of India’s fast-growing internet users in their neighborhood. We’re excited about the adoption and early engagement and are looking forward to providing a useful experience to people in five new cities across India, Woodward added.

Google has updated the Neighbourly app with a few new features. Google has improved the voice input experience on the app with better controls, and the ability to respond to questions in one’s spoken language. For easier and faster conversation, the app also gets support for inline reply. The app also gets the ability to group similar answers to a user’s query.
