BBC World Service has further expanded the availability of its Hindi-language news content on mobile phones by developing an app in Hindi for Android smartphones v4.1 and above. The free app offers quick and easy access to news content from BBC Hindi.

The new Android app adds to the BBC Hindi app for a range of Nokia phones. BBC Hindi Editor, Nidheesh Tyagi, claimed, “The bbchindi.com mobile audiences are growing steadily. The traffic to the bbchindi.com mobile website has risen by more than 330 per cent in the past year, and accounts for nearly a third of our total direct traffic to the website – up from about a fifth a year ago. The development of apps such as these improves the user experience of a greater number of Hindi-speakers, wherever they are, as they come to the BBC news and information via their mobile phones.”

Stories, offered via the new BBC Hindi Android app, are arranged into categories, including Top News Videos and Picture Galleries, India, International, Entertainment, Sport and Science.

The BBC Hindi app can be downloaded from the Google Play store.
