Google input tool for desktop not working

Google has removed its Indic simple type tool for windows desktop using this you can do type in your native language. A few years back we checked google launch this nice app for android and windows also. But now Google has removed windows version.

After searching and google we found to meet the requirement of native language users around. Microsoft launched its own Download Microsoft Indic language tools. As I do download this Microsoft Indic tool it is working similar to google Indic. Even you don’t need to download the plugin for browsers separately to type native words.


Google is continuously working to make life easy of their customer based. This would be a milestone for native language lover. Sometimes you’re old aged and rural friends only know his / her native language this will help them to connect with ease. Thanks to google team taking this initiative.
