Google has announced it has added 13 new language support for its Gmail service, which previously had support for 58 languages, summing up the service’s language support to a total of 71 languages now. The company has stated that, along with the new languages addition, it also now covers 94 percent of the world’s internet population.
The additional languages added include Afrikaans, Armenian, Azerbaijani (Azeri), Chinese (Hong Kong), French (Canada), Galician, Georgian, Khmer, Lao, Mongolian, Nepali, Sinhala, and Zulu.
Email is a universal way to communicate. No matter where you are, you can reach anyone else in the world with the press of a button. We take it for granted now, but it’s so much easier to keep in touch with people than it was in the old days of pens, paper, and stamps. But there’s still an important barrier we need to overcome to make email truly universal: language. Gmail is already available in 58 languages, and today we’re bringing that total to 71—covering 94 percent of the world’s Internet population and bringing us closer to our goal of making sure that, no matter what language you write in, you can use it in Gmail.
The company stated that the email service is a universal way to communicate and support for as many languages as possible make the whole experience as natural and smooth as possible. The additional languages are currently available on both web and mobile browsers.
