- Google Toilet Locator is an app that will help you locate, hopefully, a clean, toilet in your surroundings asap.
- Finding a toilet using the app is similar to locating a theater or a restaurant using Google Maps. You enter ‘toilet’ or ‘swach’ or ‘swachhata’ in the search bar, and the app will point you to the closest toilet.
- The app will lead you to public toilets and also those inside public buildings like malls, hospitals, metro stations, petrol pumps, etc.
- Be prepared. Initially, the app might not point you to the cleanest toilet (finding a clean toilet in India is like finding a needle in the haystack). It might just lead you to the nearest toilet. And if it is unclean or broken down, you can leave a review of it. The Locator is hoping to use such reviews to provide you with better search results in future.
- Google is working with Ministry of Urban Development, India to launch the Toilet Locator.
- The app will be launched mid-November 2016 in Delhi. And soon will be launched in other cities too.
