Google Keyboard for android is now Gboard and it has some of the exciting features which definitely is going to enhance your experience. A few months back, Google introduced this keyboard for iOs and since then it is everyone’s favorite. Google has finally released a new update to its stock keyboard app for android.
What does Gboard bring?
One of the most lovable features of this keyboard is its G button which lets you search anything on google right from your keyboard. This integrated search feature saves lots of jumping out of the app to perform a search. To enable this feature, you can head over to google keyboard setting and under the search option, you can enable G button.
The update also brings an optional dedicated number row which for me is definitely a time saver. Another feature to look at is that now you can switch to other languages more easily. You can set up to three different languages with the preference for one.
You can have a look at all the features down below:
- G button for instant search right from the keyboard
- Pop-out toolbar which provides access to themes, settings, one-handed mode and googles search
- Optional dedicated number row
- Up to three active languages with preference for one (previously had to switch)
- Gesture typing is now glide typing
- Search for emoji
- Rearranged emoji panel with group selection at bottom
- Emoji have bright halo effect around them
- GIF button is always shown but disabled in apps without support.
