Google launches ‘Neighbourly’ app in India, life will be such easy!
There is no perfect solution to get information of the place where we live or any other places. Information like best school near me, children garden around us, best and cheap tuition classes or anything. But now you can easily get all the details of your region or area just by using on app. Google India has launched an app called Neighbourly in the country. Currently, its beta version has been released. People will be able to find information about this app on this app. Google India said via tweet, ‘Today beta version is available in Mumbai. If you are in another city then join the waiting list.
“With ‘Neighbourly’ app, we are exploring a new way of moving ahead with Google’s mission, to organize the world’s information,” said Joshua Woodward, a group product manager at Google’s next billion user team. So, that the information is easily available and used.
On behalf of Google it was said that the app will easily get information from your area. Through this app, users will be able to collect such information as to what is the safest park for children around them or what is the cheap private tuition centre for Maths for children around them.
In the same way, people can get notifications of other types of information around this app. On the app, people can get answers by typing their questions or by speaking. Google said, ‘you can question without giving your personal information on the app. Your questions on ‘Neighbourly’ app immediately reach your right neighbours and they return related answers and notifications to you through the app.

Have a question about what’s happening nearby?
Which is the safest park for kids in this area? Any affordable maths private tuition around here? Know a good electrician to advise for a powerback for my new house? Any best ayurvedic chemist nearby?
Local questions like these come up all the time. But they’re hard to answer, especially in big cities. And when you ask your local group chat for help, you find it’s noisy and only reaches the people you know.
That’s why we built Neighbourly, the location-based app that connects you to your community so you can get answers you trust, share your own advice, and stay in-the-know together. Neighbours have the most up-to-date, relevant, and credible insight about what’s happening nearby. With Neighbourly, ask your entire community all at once in a simple Q&A format.
Neighbourly will help you:
Find expert local answers.
Just ask your question, and it’s routed to a community of neighbours that can help. You can also speak your question into the app, just like you were talking to a neighbour. The app uses Google’s expert speech recognition technology to transcribe your questions in eight Indian languages, so you can ask your neighbour a question in a language you are comfortable with.
Share everyday advice.
Find relevant questions where you can advise or assist by sharing answers and advice that help your community. Each answer will help a neighbour find credible information they care about. The more you advise, the more you’re recognized for your insights. Plus, everytime you answer back and assist, you support making your entire neighbourhood more informed.
Keep up with your local community.
Swipe back and forth and find relevant questions to gain local insight and get credible knowledge. Tap the star to follow the specific question with information you care about, and get relevant updates back as your neighbours share answers and support their community. You can even share your favourite answers with your friends on social media.
Connect with your neighbours safely.
Find, ask and answer questions without sharing all of your personal information. Keep personal details like your phone number, full name and other contact information completely private when using the app. Your profile only contains a small profile picture and your first name — the only information your community will see or find when you ask a question or share an answer. And your neighbour can never message you directly.
Starting today, we’re making a beta version of Neighbourly available on the Google Play Store for all phones in Mumbai running Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and higher. If you live outside of Mumbai, join our waitlist and invite your neighbours. We’ll be looking to expand to other neighbourhoods across India that are the most excited to try Neighbourly.
Neighbourly is the human, helpful, local way to ask and answer questions about what’s happening in your neighbourhood. Together, your answers can help make your community stronger and feel even more neighbourly.
