I'm rather curious what the difference is between us that it doesn't work automatically for you. Even google assistant understands me when I speak either language.
There are a lot of reasons for this, and I don't think I'm alone here:
* Like many Indic language users I speak and understand multiple languages and I'd like to contextually reflect this in my IMs
* Relative lack of fluency/comfort reading Indic script (almost each Indic language has a different abiguda)
* A pronounced lack of experience typing using the multiple abigudas, all of which are more complex to type than the Latin alphabet
I'd really like to be able to type Indic words using Latin script without fighting with autocorrect -- or turning it off altogether.
