Google rolls out virtual business cards in India – what does it mean?

Over the past few months, Google has reinforced its India strategy, first with their investments in Jio Mart and commitments to India-focused initiatives. Then came the news of Pixel 4a arriving in the country some time in October. Now, Google has topped it off by making available its new Search feature that allows users to get discovered online more easily.

Google says the feature called people cards, would be its first attempt in India and was a result of the affinity that people in the world’s second largest internet market showed towards looking up their own names on Google Search.
