Koo, an indigenous microblogging service provider announced the launch of a new ‘talk to type’ feature in India on Tuesday, May 4.
With this feature, users just have to speak and the app automatically turns it to text, and users can just tap send to see it posted on the social media platform.
Aprameya Radhakrishna, the co-founder of Koo, said, This ‘talk to type’ feature is magical and takes creation for regional language creators to the next level. Users don’t have to use the keyboard anymore and type out lengthy thoughts.”
Further adding, “Indian language speakers can now speak their minds and the words will show up on the screen magically. For those who found it difficult to type in local languages, this feature removes all that pain. We will keep adding value to Indians by enabling the easiest localized forms of expression and present their thoughts to India in a seamless way,”
Currently, Koo supports Kannada, Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil in addition to English. The company plans to bring support for more regional languages like Assamese, Bangla, Marathi, Gujarati, Malayalam, Oriya, and Punjabi.
Koo won the AtmaNirbhar Bharat App Innovation Challenge organized by the Union Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in August 2020. More than five million people have installed the app on Android phones.
