Further, of the 52+ million Koos on the platform, nearly half are Hindi. By making available a microblogging platform in non-English languages, Koo has created the opportunity for people fluent in their native languages to participate and engage in online conversations. 

A Koo spokesperson said, “The majority of the Indian people communicate in native languages, leaving them out of the social media discussion, which is largely in English. As we aspire to bring the next billion users to the internet and remove the bias against non-English speaking audiences, Koo is on a mission to democratize the voice of India. Koo has created a space where Indians who are comfortable speaking their mother tongues can express their thoughts and ideas freely. The platform enables users to Koo in their preferred language and rest assured that a large part of their community will understand the context without explanation. Koo seeks to bring people and communities together using language as a uniting factor.” 

Conversations on Koo-Hindi range from social causes, political views, Bollywood, sports, current affairs, festivities, days of national importance, remembrance of National leaders, and other such campaigns. Based on a study of Hindi content on various microblogging platforms performed over a number of days and at various times, it was found that, on average, the number of Hindi posts on Koo is nearly double the number of Hindi posts on any other microblogging site. Further, the number of Hindi users on Koo has grown by 80% in the last 4 months, and the number of Koos in Hindi has doubled in the same period. 

As per various studies, the Indian internet user base is expected to reach the billion mark in the next 5-6 years. The Indian language internet users are expected to grow at a significantly faster rate than English users.  

Some Chief Ministers communicate only in Hindi

A few Chief Ministers of Indian states communicate only in Hindi on social media platforms.

Politicians and celebrities are joining Koo to connect with the Hindi users
