Google announces specific enhancements for Nigerian programs

Google has announced new features, products as well as other programs to help more people in Nigeria and across the continent.

The announcement includes details on navigation instructions in a Nigerian voice for motorcycle and car driving modes. 

As well as Gallery Go, new Street View imagery, Google Go updates, Google Lens and Bolo, and a Nigerian culinary experience from Google Arts and Culture. 

Also, the company has partnered with the Nigerian Government to provide an online safety curriculum to all primary and secondary school students in the country.

The initiative would reach 56 million Nigerian students every year.

The newly introduced travel mode in Google Maps which provide navigations and directions for motorcycles in Nigeria will also be available in Ghana, Rwanda, Benin Republic, Togo and Uganda from this week.

In a bid to enable easier exploration in the country, Google is publishing more panoramic imagery on Street View. 

Beginning with the image of Lagos from two years ago, Google has added Street View imagery of Abuja, Benin City, Enugu, and Ibadan today, with almost 12 thousand kilometers of roads added.

Google is committing an additional $4 million to support youth empowerment, gender equality and agriculture, alongside piloting new initiatives to power the social impact ecosystem and promote research on what the future of work looks like for African youth.
