Discussing about how factors have changed in terms of technology, Pichai said, "The rate at which factors have been advancing in Native indian is incredible."
"We did not have mobile phones in those days. I remember awaiting quite a long a chance to get a turning phone at home. Was missing access to computer systems increasing up.

Just to go get someone at the girl's hostel, you had to walk in the front as well as someone to them. And they'd go in and fully say Anjali, Sundar is here. It was not exactly a enjoyable experience," he said.
Talking about how Bing is operating on products for the nation that can be extended worldwide, he said, "We look forward to less expensive mobile phones in Native indian. In the $30 segment for basic mobile phones. We at Search engines want to focus on use of Internet in non-urban areas in Native indian. We are big followers of the Electronic Native indian program. We are also operating on digitizing payments," included Pichai.
