Is your typing slow in Hindi keyboard but willing to chat, post and comment in Hindi? Do you really want to gossip with your friends in Devanagari script? So, go ahead with using the Facebook messenger. Yes, Facebook has come up with an amazing nifty feature i.e. Hindi Transliteration feature for its Android users. This new feature will enable the users to type a Hindi sentence using the Roman script. This feature will be expedient for the people who find it difficult to type in Hindi characters.
The Facebook has installed a lightweight Hindi editor feature in its android app solving the problem and averting from downloading the separate Hindi app and switching the keyboards again and again.
As earlier said this tool will allow the users to type in Devanagari scripts using the Roman characters. This tool features the button above the keyboard in parallel with other buttons i.e. camera, emojis, location and tagging feature when you’re typing. The users have to just tap the button and promptly Hindi editor keyboard will appear where you can simply type in Roman characters and Facebook will automatically convert it into your native script.
The company stated the two major reasons as mentioned above for installing the new Hindi transliteration feature. First, one is that the most smartphones do not support multilingual input feature. And secondly, the smartphones which already have the Hindi keyboards downloaded creates the problem and make it difficult for the users in switching the keypad.
As India is the second largest Facebook user country and there is no need to raise your eyebrows if the app comes with more native languages other than Hindi.
Facebook, has recently launched a new feature i.e. group calling feature which helped the users to make group calls up to 50 people. And in future, there is a chance of increasing more number.
