Google Train and Hiring 2 million Android developers in Hyderabad
Google on Tuesday reiterated that it was committed to help India come online and announced a number of measures that it said would help Indian web users in using internet more effectively and effortlessly. At the same time, it also said that the company would invest more into expanding its Hyderabad campus.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai, who was in Delhi, said that the company would "expand its Hyderabad campus." Though he did not specifically spell out the details of the expansion it is expected that the company would hire more engineers for the campus and will probably devote more resources for services that impact Indians directly, such as the Google Translate features that can make web content accessible to people in India who do not know English.

Pichai, who said that in 2016 India would have more Android users than the US, added that the company would train 2 million Android developers in the next three years in the country.

"We are already seeing incredible growth in the number of developers in India, and our forecasts indicate that this is growth that is not going to slow down anytime soon. At Google we are committed to provide access to tools that empower developers to be successful," said Jason Titus, vice president of engineering of the developer product group.

Google said that to train 2 million developers, it would work with over 30 universities in India. This would be done in collaboration with the National Skill Development Corporation.

Pichai, who would later meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said that Google was committed to bring web services to next billion users in India.

"Mobile has proven to be a great equaliser, giving access to computing to a billion more peopled and counting. But there are fundamental questions around how to ensure a truly inclusive, open internet for everyone," said Pichai. "We are here to talk about our journey - about where we've come from, where we are, and where we are going, to help everyone get as much from the internet as you and I have."
Google plans to hire more people for its Bengaluru office as well, which is set for an expansion.
