Powerful Typing Hindi & Marathi Android Keyboard for Free

July 25, 2013

Android is most widely used Mobile OS in this universe & I believe it narrowing the connectivity of people using some great apps like WhatsApp, WeChat, Nimbuzz & GTalk etc. This ubiquitous technology helping us to gather any person from various regions  to do collaborative chit-chatting, which might be a serious or funny chatting sessions :D.Most probably this kind of communication is done via our native language, as we know that there are from 6800 to 6900 distinct languages in the modern world.

How on earth we can forgot our mother tongue?, though we are more proficient in english.Right? 😉


Recently I connected with one of my neighbour who is  living in USA, we had long chats many times but after few interesting tweeting sessions he asked me to type into our native language "Marathi", As we are chatting from WhatsApp and Nimbuzz. It's pretty hard for me to type in marathi as my android device don't have such facility. That time I was using Google transliterate web-interface to copy and paste marathi words into apps. My geeky mind always poking me that this is not an optimal solution for such simple task.

After searching & trying many apps from PlayStore, I found a perfect free app called "Google Hindi Input ". Google hindi input is nothing but devanagari keyboard for your android, Which ultimately  help you to type in your native devanagari languages(hindi/marathi) seamlessly like Google Transliterate.

Installing Hindi/Marathi keyboard  on Android :

1. Download  & install Google Hindi Input app

2. Navigate to " Settings-> Language & Input "


3. Select "Google hindi input" and make it default too.


4. Now navigate to any app where your keyboard will come and start typing into devanagari languages.

Why to use Google hindi Input :

1. Its FREE ! & easy to install.

2. UI and UX is much familiar with existing Android keyboard.


3. One key 'language switch' option.

4. Great word prediction with customised settings.

Note: This application is compatible with Android devices who is above Android version 4.0, if you  send message to lower version of android  smartphone then it will not be readable at receivers end.  It because android officially started supporting this after 4.0 OS update.

      1. Dear Saurabh,

        Thank you for your prompt reply and hope you can resolve the issue asap. Earlier I was using HTC explorer and in that phone there was a similar function as there is in google hindi input. for that phone I did not downloaded google hindi input. Also if I want to write "अॅपल" I use to write it in similar fashion as it is written above. May be you can have a look at it for your reference.
        thanking you once again
