New language options will be available in the Google Maps app on both Android and iOS, as well as to desktop users. In an interview with Business Insider, Akasaka said that Google prioritizes accessibility and inclusion for all in their services, but "it's often facilitated by whether or not there's a legal requirement, or some kind of requirement we need to adhere to".

The company also announced that it's expanding ebook and audiobook family sharing to users in 13 countries, including Belgium, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Chile, Mexico, Japan (audiobooks only), and South Africa. The new 39 languages are spoken by over 1.25 Billion people around the globe.
Google developed the new feature in conjunction with public transport agencies in the cities involved in the initial rollout, along with crowdsourced accessibility information that it has been collecting from users, and 200 meetups organised by Local Guides to add accessibility information to Maps in September 2017. Built into that permission was also the call and text logging feature. While it has been extensively used in the US, Canada and many European countries, its application in India was initially permitted for a few locations.

Sure, there are equally capable alternatives like Here We Go but Maps is Maps and with new features like the ability to download maps, there are less and less compelling reasons to go with the competition. And Google Cloud customers have been asking for access to the technology for a long time now, so that developers can add text-to-speech capabilities to their own applications, he added. Android has always had a much more lax permission system that has allowed third-party app developers such as Facebook to collect more data than their apps or services require to function.
