Every year the company hosts the Google for India event, where it unveils an assortment of products for its country users. While Google hasn’t officially announced what will be announced at the event, this will be the 6th edition and Google is expected to show off a new range of devices like every year.
A recent company tweet revealed that in addition to Sundar Pichai, Sanjay Gupta, Google India Country Head and Vice President, Caesar Sengupta, Google Vice President Payments, and Next Billion Users and Sapna Chadha, Google Senior Country Marketing Director India and Southeast Asia will also make some significant announcements at the event.
