- Punjabi keyboard (ਪੰਜਾਬੀ)
- Tamil keyboard (தமிழ்)

On your phone, if you can read your language in its native script above, you may install and use Google Indic Keyboard to input your language; otherwise your phone may not support your language.

Google Indic Keyboard supports different modes of input:

- Transliteration mode - Get output in your native language by spelling out the pronunciation using English letters (For example, “namaste“ -> “नमस्ते“.)

- Native keyboard mode - Type directly in native script.

- Handwriting mode (currently available for Hindi only) - Write directly on your phone screen.

- Hinglish mode - If you choose “Hindi” as an input language, the English keyboard will suggest both English and Hinglish terms.
