It has been observed that there is a notable rise of voice search over the year.

By birth human beings have an affinity towards their mother tongue. Now a days we can see that the internet is being accessed in various local languages all over the world. Even people from developing countries like India, which consists of multiple languages, started to surf the internet with their regional languages like Hindi, Bengali, Marathi, Tamil, etc. There has been a sharp rise of this practice after the launch of Jio in India, which gave internet access to every corner of the country, even in extreme rural areas where people don’t know any other language apart from their mother language. So, the marketing world can take this advantage and start creating new avenues of success by reaching to those people who are more familiar with their own language.
