Google To Launch a Toilet Finder For India

Browse This Page

Google has partnered with the Indian Government to launch a toilet finder built into Maps in India. India has one of the worst toilet problems in the world. With over 70 % households lacking basic toilet facilities, this tool aims to help people with access to smartphones, which surprisingly is more than those with toilets.

Google and the Ministry of Urban Development in India have made this tool simple enough that a user can search in multiple Indian languages for words like “toilet,” “lavatory,” “swachhata” and “shulabh.”

This is also a crowd sourced platform which will populate the condition and availability of toilets as users use it more and more. It is expected to be rolled out in the coming months, however, no proper timeline exists.

Now if only Google could work on a currency filled ATM finder, India would be a better place.
