  • Hi Samar23,

    Apologies for the delay. Are you referring to Bing news search or Microsoft news API? Based on the URI of the API it looks like bing news search and by checking the language support of the service hindi is not listed as a valid language. Here is the reference for the same. 

    Also, if the language is not supported by setLang the default en(English) is used as documented here.

    If setlang is not valid (for example, zh) or Bing doesn’t support the language (for example, af, af-na), Bing defaults to en (English).
