Over the last month and a half, Indian voters have cast their vote to elect the next government. As counting commences today, Google is bringing live updates to Google Search and YouTube.
We are showing live election results, sourced from Election Commission of India through Nielsen, on Search and on the Assistant [across Android, iOS and KaiOS]. You can find national level results (for example by searching for 'India election results') as well as constituency level results (for example by searching for 'East Delhi election results’).
On YouTube, over 150 news channels are bringing live election results coverage through the day. These include NDTV, AajTak, ABP Majha, ABP Ananda, TV9 Telugu Live, Puthiyathalaimurai TV, Public TV, Asianet News, OTV News and News18 Urdu, among others.
For the 2019 Indian Elections, Doordarshan is bringing inclusive live result experience to users on YouTube. Audiences in India can tune into the DD News YouTube Channel for the live video stream in 12 languages [English, Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Marathi, Gujarati, Malayalam, Urdu, Assamese and Oriya], as well as sign language. Live audio news will be available on News on AIR YouTube Channel.
If you are in India, you can also catch all the counting day action live on our homepage.
