New Delhi [India], January 28 (ANI): Flipkart Wholesale, the digital B2B marketplace of Flipkart Group, on Friday introduced voice search features in Hindi and English that will help Kiranas and retailers utilise the search function more effectively, making it easier to transact on the platform.

While technology penetration across the country increases, a majority of internet users, including Kiranas and MSMEs, are from non-English speaking backgrounds. The voice search will make the journey more convenient for them as varying proficiency in English makes it challenging to perform searches using text input, Flipkart Wholesale said in a statement.
