Twitter’s Indian rival Koo rolled out its ‘Talk to Type’ feature for Indian languages on Tuesday and stated it is the first social media platform to launch such a feature.

This would facilitate and empower those users who are not comfortable with using the keyboard.

‘Anybody who wants to share their thoughts can now do so easily without having to type. They can speak their thoughts out loud and the words will show up magically on the screen. All at the click of a button and without using a keyboard,’ the company said in a statement.

This will be done for all the Indian languages Koo is presently available in, and will be the ‘easiest way to share thoughts with people in a native Indian language’.

‘Koo is the first social media platform in the world that is using this `Talk to Type’ feature, that too in Indian regional languages, apart from English. This will enable regional language creation in the easiest way possible for millions of Koo users,’ the statement said.

Speaking about the new feature, Aprameya Radhakrishna, Co-founder of Koo said “This`Talk to Type’ feature is magical and takes creation for regional language creators to the next level. Users don’t have to use the keyboard anymore and type out lengthy thoughts’.

Radhakrishna added: ‘For those who found it difficult to type in local languages, this feature removes all that pain’.

The platform will continue adding value to users by facilitating the most comfortable localized forms of expression and seamlessly present their thoughts, he added.

The new feature launched by Koo would give it an edge over its competitors and would also help the company in acquiring more users.
