YouTube has gone balle balle – Punjabi is now among 15 new languages that can be used to navigate the world’s largest video-sharing site.
Punjabi was the only Indian language among the 15 new ones though YouTube added Hindi, Marathi, Gujarati, Bengali and several South Indian languages in the past.
“YouTube creators and viewers speak nearly every language under the sun, and to make sure all of you can enjoy all of YouTube, so should we. That’s why we’ve just added 15 more languages that you can use to navigate YouTube,” said a statement from the site.
“This brings YouTube to a total of 76 languages available, covering 95% of the Internet population.”
The languages of three of India’s neighbours – Myanmar, Nepal and Sri Lanka – were also among the 15 new languages added by YouTube, which gets 60 million unique users every month in India.
The 76 language options are only for site navigation and choosing them translates the website's links, buttons and text.
