Gmail users in India who like communicating in their native language rejoice! Gmail has added a new feature whereby it is possible to compose emails in hindi and four other Indian languages, namely Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam, very easily. This feature is enabled by default for Indian users, as said by Google. Well mine was not enabled. In case yours is not enabled too and you want to enable it, you can follow the steps depicted by the pictures below to enable it:
If enabled you will see an icon with an Indian character next to the Bold button, as seen in the last picture above. To select the language of your choice simply click on the icon and select the language from the drop dow menu. Now to use this feature simply type the word the way it is pronounced and Gmail will automatically convert it into the language of your choice.
