Dating-related searches are growing much faster than matrimony queries in India and non-metro cities have outpaced metros in online search across categories, search engine giant Google said on Thursday. According to Google’s “Year in Search: Insights for Brands” report, there has been a 75 percent increase in “Near Me” queries and a 100 percent growth in queries for co-working spaces.

“As highlighted in the report, the growing influence of online videos, increase in usage of language and voice, along with a rise of ML and AI are opportunities for brands and marketers,” Vikas Agnihotri, Country Director, Google India, said in a statement.

Indian language Internet users are expected to account for nearly 75 percent of the total user base by 2021 and Google search trends show a significant move in this direction. “Hindi is also gaining traction in the technology sector with a two-fold increase in queries in Hindi, which are mainly coming from laptops and PCs”, said the tech giant.

Last year saw an increase in the adoption of online automation as businesses used Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to drive efficiency and improve customer experience. Brands across various categories, such as BFSI and telecom, have started integrating voice assistants like Google Assistant with their customer service to help customers.
