Search giant Google has started rolling out Google Neighbourly app across India. Initially, the app was limited to select cities across the country including Mumbai. Now, Google has started expanding its reach into all major cities across the country.
During its early phase in beta, the app managed to reach over 1.5 million downloads across seven Indian cities. Since then, the number of users downloading and using the app has grown exponentially.
Starting today, Google Neighbourly app will also be accessible to users in Delhi and Bengaluru. Right now, Google Neighbourly is exclusive to Android users, and there is no information if the search giant is planning to come up with its iOS counterpart for iPhone and iPad users anytime soon.
As its name suggests, Google Neighbourly app is aimed at helping users find out answers to their questions pertaining to their neighbourhood. For example, let’s say that you want to catch a bus from Byculla station going towards Lotus Colony in Worli. Sometimes, it can be a little difficult to find out all the relevant information to such questions.
That is where Google Neighbourly app can come in handy. All users need to do is select the area and post a question. The question will be shown to all users in the same or surrounding area based on your GPS coordinates. Once your question reaches other Neighbourly users they can help you by providing more information.
Getting started with Google Neighbourly is pretty easy. All you have to do is make sure that you have the latest version of Neighbourly app installed on your phone. The app takes up about 20MB of storage space. Then, you have to sign into the app using your Google account credentials.
Once you are done following all the on-screen instructions, you will be ready to use Google Neighbourly app.
