How does Neighbourly works and how does it solve local concerns?

Google has just launched Neighbourly, a mobile app for discovering your neighbourhood through local experts.

How does it work?

The app lets users ask questions through text or voice in the English language and eight Indian languages, or answer existing ones. A user's profile picture and first name will be displayed publicly, but the personal information will be excluded from being shared.

This innovation from Google is an excellent move to make more platforms for hyperlocal intelligence. Interestingly, Neighbourly will be most beneficial among users who have just moved to a new city, as they’ll be getting local answers to their local questions. For in every city, there will always be locals who know the place better such as the street shortcuts, hidden spots, and tips.

As of this writing, the beta version is only available on Android, open to people in Mumbai City, India.
