Google India has launched the Hindi version of its popular mapping and navigation app, Google Maps.

Announcing the availability of Hindi language maps via a blog post, Google informed that these maps will be available on the new Google Maps (web interface) and on the latest Google Maps for mobile app on Android devices running versions 4.3 and above.

The labels that are visible on Google Maps (see picture) were created by transliterating English names to Hindi, and ensuring the text resonates with local dialects.
