The invest made
The investment in VerSe Innovation Pvt, producer of the Josh quick video app from India and the news aggregator Dailyhunt was added by Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Microsoft Corp. and the firm was estimated at over $1 trillion.
100 million new Internet users from rural India have been online in the last two year alone,” said Google Vice President Caesar Sengupta in a blog post. “However, many of these web users continue to find it difficult to read content or services in their own language with confidence.” That is why GOOGL is interested in helping VerSe, whose Dailyhunt is a landing place to use 14 languages for more than 300 million users to access content. VerSe’s other partners are Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Sequoia Capital India. In its vision, Josh will be extended, its content-creating environment expanded and artificial intelligent technology is built to help it meet an ever-greater audience. It will also explore possible movements beyond its domestic borders in other world markets which require vernacular material.
