Thirteen new languages for Gmail, including Afrikaans and Zulu - http://goo.gl/zRiuw5
No matter where you’re from, language shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to keeping in touch with the people you care about. Gmail is already available in 58 languages, including Amharic and Swahili, and we’re now bringing that total to 71—covering 94 percent of the world’s Internet population.

Starting today, 13 new languages are joining the Gmail family: Afrikaans, Zulu, Armenian, Azerbaijani (Azeri), Chinese (Hong Kong), French (Canada), Galician, Georgian, Khmer, Lao, Mongolian, Nepali, and Sinhala.

Over the weekend, we launched a way to help people support their favorite team in the #WorldCup !   Instead of getting your hands dirty with face paint (the ultimate sign of team allegiance), you can paint your favorite team’s country flag onto a photo of you and your friends. 

All you need to do is:
Take a photo of yourself and up to 5 friends who’d like their faces painted
Share it on Google+ with the hashtag [#PaintBelgium / #PaintFrance / #PaintGermany / #PaintNetherlands / #PaintSwitzerland] or any other country in the knockout round: http://goo.gl/9ogBwE
After a few minutes check back in your stream. The faces will be painted with the country flag of your choice

May the best fans win! #groupofdeath

This year marks the first time in the history of International Mathematical Olympiads, that the event will take place on African soil. Better yet, this year the event will host the finest young minds from more than 100 different countries, with 12 teams representing the African continent.  We're delighted to have sponsored  the IMO and their work, which encourages mathematical excellence and plays a role in developing our youth.  More at http://www.imo2014.org.za

Getting people online in Africa
Introduction
Mission

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.

Google Sub Saharan Africa (SSA)

The Internet is a powerful source of information. Google's strategy in Africa is to get more users online by developing an accessible, relevant and sustainable internet ecosystem.
  • Reducing access as a barrier to all potential users
  • Making the Internet relevant and useful to Africans
  • Helping strengthen an Internet ecosystem in Africa that is vibrant, and sustainable and self-sufficient in the long-term
Our Google+ Page

The Google Africa team will be sharing interesting information about our events, product launches and other activities in the region.  We may from time to time post information from other places which we think you will find interesting and useful.

We hope that you'll find the content and interactions here fun, engaging, interesting and most importantly, valuable.  

We want your feedback so don't be shy to tell us what you think and how we can do better.

Look out for open hangouts with Googlers on the team.
